Safe Streets and Representative Police Forces Act of 2015

This bill amends the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 to expand the allowable use of grant funds under the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program to include grants to institutions of higher education (IHEs) to support criminal justice-related majors. It prioritizes grants to predominantly black institutions, historically black colleges and universities, IHEs where at least 40% of students are Latino, and IHEs where at least 40% of students are Native American.
