Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $3,893,810)

The Louisiana Law Enforcement Commission proposes to implement the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant for fiscal year 2023. The purpose of this program is to provide resources to help Louisiana agencies fight the drug epidemic and violent crime throughout the state of Louisiana. The project activities include providing state and local units of government funding to enforce drug control laws and to improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, with an emphasis on violent crime and serious offenders. Expected outcomes for this program include continuing programs to improve drug control via enforcement of the laws against violent and non-violent crime; addressing recidivism by strengthening the areas of the criminal justice system that focus on prevention of crime and on drug abuse intervention; and responding to the need for specialized law enforcement and prosecution training. Subrecipient activities will be determined by data gathered from district planning meetings, as well as information collected by the Louisiana Law Enforcement Commission staff and policy board. These activities will include promoting law enforcement, prosecution and adjudication efforts necessary to provide for a safe and drug-free society.
