Client Successes

  • Lake County, IL

    The Ferguson Group worked with Lake County on a project to improve drug treatment courts that integrate services for nonviolent, substance-abusing offenders. The $189,693 grant was used to establish new assistance for target populations not currently being served, enhance existing court operations, and expand court services. This funding was made available through the Department of Justice Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program.

  • City of Woodland, CA 

    The City of Woodland Police Department received a $375,000 award from the Community Oriented Policing Services Hiring Program after unsuccessfully applying for the program twice. With the strategic planning and grant review services offered by TFG, the Department successfully secured grant funds to hire three new patrol officers. These officers will be assigned to the Patrol Division during times of peak calls to better serve the community.

  • High Point, NC

    The High Point Police Department (HPPD) instituted a unique policing method called "focused deterrence" that engages repeat violent offenders and offers them an opportunity and assistance to make certain lifestyle/behavioral changes or face long-term incarceration. The "High Point Model" has won many prestigious awards and has been referred to in the President's Department of Justice (DOJ) budget as a national model of policing. TFG worked with HPPD to apply focused deterrence to domestic violence offenders and has helped facilitate a dialogue between HPPD and DOJ's Office of Violence Against Women.
