Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $160,297)

Anne Arundel County, Maryland will administer the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant: FY 2023 Local Solicitation with the goal of providing funding to organizations within the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) to promote efficient and effective processing of criminal cases from arrest through ultimate disposition. Within Anne Arundel County, areas served include zip codes 21401, 21060, 21403, 20742, 21409, 21225.

The CJCC Coordination Program seeks to break the criminal justice cycle through treatment and family intervention programs funded by the grant.  This is primarily accomplished through the Adult Drug Court programs.  Costs funded by the grant related to these special courts include salary and fringe for a treatment case manager and paralegal staff.  In addition, the CJCC Coordination Program includes funding a contract with the local mental health agency for treatment of incarcerated individuals with co-occurring disorders. The Partnership for Children Youth and Families will use their FY23 BJAG allotment to fund a Juvenile Re-entry Coordinator and to fund Violence Intervention strategies through the Peer Violence Interruption Health Ambassador program.  The Sheriff’s Office allocation will fund a mobile app that increases transparency and information sharing among law enforcement and communities. These programs will serve the citizens of Anne Arundel County and those who visit and work here as well.

Date Created: September 25, 2023
