The Office of Adult and Juvenile Justice Assistance is hosting virtual events to assist you in preparing, writing, and submitting your grant application for the Crime Prevention through Safer Streets Grant Program.
Are you in the process of preparing your grant application?
There were several opportunities to join DCJ virtually and ask questions. These are very informal opportunities to ask questions and listen to the questions and answers posed by others.
Do you need to learn more about the application and the type of information requested?
Join our training. This virtual training reviewed the instructions and the type of information being requested in the application. You will be able to ask questions during the training.
You are always welcome to submit questions to Anna Lopez.

Example Equipment Used for Cell Phone Forensics
This is not an all-encompassing list and no business is being promoted. These are only examples.
This equipment has the capability of getting into locked devices and extracting different types of data.
- Forensic tool that can extract information from phones such as phone calls, social media correspondences, photos, and other data
- Works on both iOS platforms and android platforms; however, some local users have found it to be more successful on android
- "Pathfinder" is an analytic tool that can go through all the data that is collected and sort information for investigations. The data is information from different social media sites, cell phone information, cell tower information, suspect information and links of all sorts. This is an additional cost to the basic Cellebrite product.
- "Guardian" is cloud-based storage (data management) for all information associated with Pathfinder, but information from Pathfinder can also be stored on the premise with a server
Graykey from GrayShift
- Graykey has the capability of getting into locked devices and extracting different types of data
- Works on both iOS platforms and android platforms; however, some local users have found it to be more successful on iOS platforms
- After the information is extracted from a device, it needs to be put into Cellebrite physical analyzer to parse out the information
Example Equipment Used for Data Analytics
This is analytic tool can go through all the data that is collected and sort through information for investigations. The data is information from different social media sites, cell phone information, cell tower information, suspect information, and links of all sorts.
The NighthawAscend.cloud product has servers to save data from computers and cell phones.
Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP)
ODMAP provides near real-time suspected overdose data across jurisdictions to support public safety and public health efforts to mobilize an immediate response to a sudden increase, or spike, in overdose events. ODMAP links first responders and relevant record management systems to a mapping tool to track overdoses to stimulate real-time response and strategic analysis across jurisdictions. Resource: The Overdose Mapping Application Program: A guide to the ODMAP platform and community user application.
This is a FREE tool. Request agency access by completing an electronic form. The form will be reviewed by ODMAP. The review process may take up to a month for access to be granted.
Example Equipment Used for Personal and Equipment Protection
ResQ CQL - handheld analyzer detecting trace elements of a substance, drugs and/or explosives including Fentanyl identification, Note: Check with your fire departments and hazmat teams first. They may have one.
MX 908 - This device assists with detecting a trace elements of a substance, drugs and/or explosives.Note: Check with your fire departments and hazmat teams first. They may have one.
TruNarc Handheld Narcotics Analyzer - handheld analyzer used for Fentanyl identification; Note: it does not go down to the trace element level
Faraday bag for phones with battery kit - designed to charge a device while it remains shielded from RF signals; obtain the ones that have a plug-in system inside the bag so that the power cord does not act as an antenna.
