Carson City, NV – Today, Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford announced the release of a Notice of Funding Opportunity for the Services-Training-Officers-Prosecutor (STOP) and Sexual Assault Services Program (SASP) for which Nevada law enforcement agencies, prosecutorial offices, courts and non-profit organizations are eligible to apply.
