Applications for the two programs were originally due May 22 and May 24, respectively but have been extended because of technical difficulties leading to an unforeseen outage of the online COPS Application Program.
The technical issues have been resolved and the system is back online. Although no application data was lost, applicants who saved or submitted an application are advised to review it in order to ensure that it is complete and accurate. Updated information has been posted online
