Over the last several years, the Lead Applicant has demonstrated a strong commitment and made a concerted effort to meet the unique needs of all who come into contact with the criminal justice system, with an emphasis on programming, technical assistance and research support to prevent or reduce crime and violence through the use of Byrne JAG funding, when available. The Lead Applicant plans to enhance its current capacity through the implementation of community lead programs, support for law enforcement, and research and evaluation by utilizing funds administered under this grant.
