26.5 billion allocated to Justice Dept.
by UPI

WASHINGTON - The $26.5 billion U.S. Justice Department budget for 2010 would fund national security and crime-fighting efforts, budget figures show.

The budget, part of the proposal President Barack Obama presented Thursday, provides $8 billion for the FBI, including $425 million in enhancements, and $88 million for the national security division. The funding "supports the detection and disruption of terrorists, counterintelligence, cyber security, and other threats against our national security," the document said.

The budget expands the community policing program to begin hiring 50,000 additional police officers, "preventing the growth of crime during the economic downturn," the document said.

The budget allocates $145 million for the Civil Rights Division to strengthen civil rights enforcement against racial, ethnic, sexual preference, religious and gender discrimination.

The Justice Department also would receive additional funding for a comprehensive approach to the U.S. borders that combines law enforcement and prosecutorial component efforts to investigate, arrest, detain, and prosecute illegal immigrants and other criminals.

The budget also provides $6 billion for the Bureau of Prisons and $1.4 billion for the Office of Detention Trustee, as well as $109 million to expand the prisoner re-entry program.
