Funds in this program are for hiring and rehiring law enforcement officers. The purpose of this program is to create and retain jobs while increasing communities' policing capacities and efforts of crime prevention. The FY 2013 version of this program brings with it several important changes that affect funds for hiring school resource officers (SROs), hiring military veterans, and implementing programs that mitigate homicide and gun violence.

According to the COPS Office website, CPD grants are used to "advance the practice of community policing in law enforcement agencies through training and technical assistance, the development of innovative community policing strategies, applied research, guidebooks, and best practices that are national in scope."

According to the COPS Office website, Microgrants for Law Enforcement are "open to all state, local, tribal, campus, and/or other law enforcement agencies. Proposals should demonstrate an understanding of community policing and present innovative, replicable community policing initiatives."
