About the Fund

The Michigan justice training fund is a restricted fund, which means these state dollars may be used by recipient agencies only for the criminal justice in-service training of eligible trainees. Under Executive Order 2001-5, the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) is responsible for the administration of the fund.

The Commission's responsibilities under the Act are to (a) annually distribute 60% of the justice training fund to eligible entities under the law enforcement distribution, and (b) annually distribute, through a competitive grant process, the balance of the fund after administrative costs have been deducted.
