This report is Part 1 of the Advisory Commission's second assessment of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968; the first assessment took place in 1970. The purpose of this report is to determine how well the block grant has worked since that time and what statutory and administrative changes are desirable. The report is divided into two major sections: (1) legislative and administrative history of the program, and analyzing, planning and funding activities at state, regional and local levels; and (2) issues and perspectives of the program with recommendations for improving the act and its administration.
