Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $178,870)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Discretionary Grants Program (Byrne Discretionary Program) helps local communities improve the capacity of local justice systems and provides for national support efforts. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 08 Congressional Budget. Funds should be used for purposes recommended by Congress.

The City of Los Angeles will use the grant funds to support the Community Law Enforcement and Recovery (CLEAR) Program in the Foothill/Pacoima region of Los Angeles. CLEAR facilitates the recovery of gang-infested communities through a comprehensive program that removes hard-core gang members from the streets. The goal is to reduce criminal activity of gangs by reducing gang-related and Part I crimes. The CLEAR Team includes the Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles County Probation Department, Los Angeles City Attorney, Los Angeles County District Attorney, California Department of Corrections and Parole, Mayor's Office, Los Angeles City Council, Los Angeles County Supervisory Offices, and community stakeholders.
