What Your Support Makes Possible

In addition to the law enforcement-led components of the program, which are funded by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, OC GRIP conducts a series of community-oriented campaigns which are essential to the overall success of the program. These programs are a result of the partnership between select schools that are at-risk in the county and law enforcement and community partners.
