Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $467,500)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Discretionary Grants Program, administered by the Office of Justice Programs' (OJP's) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), furthers the Department's mission by assisting state and local jurisdictions in improving the criminal justice system and assisting communities in preventing drug abuse and crime. In fiscal year 2007, the Edward Byrne Memorial Discretionary Grants Program will focus on funding local, regional, and national efforts within six major categories: 1) targeting violent crime; 2) preventing crime and drug abuse; 3) enhancing local law enforcement; 4) enhancing local courts; 5) enhancing local corrections and offender reentry; and 6) facilitating justice information sharing. All categories combat, address, or otherwise respond to precipitous or extraordinary increases in crime, or in a type or types of crime.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) will use this FY 2007 Targeting Violent Crime Initiative award to fully implement their Intelligence Led Policing (ILP) project in Southern Nevada. LVMPD will create a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional partnership involving more than 20 different local and federal law enforcement agencies, departments, bureaus, offices, commissions, districts, and councils with the purpose of enhancing the safety and security of Southern Nevada's 1.8 million residents and 40 million annual visitors. Their goal is to reduce and prevent violent crimes and increase capacity to solve violent criminal cases. The primary objective is to develop a system to integrate existing information from numerous data sources into a single ILP solution. The project will produce a final report outlining the implementation process, describing lessons learned and offering suggestions for other organizations wishing to undertake a similar endeavor.
