Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $44,717)

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 Town of Greenburgh will support its Drug Treatment Court, which serves non-violent, chemically dependant offenders who are facing incarceration for one or more drug-related offenses. By participating in the court, the offender agrees to comply with court-mandated treatment that includes regular drug testing and intensive rehabilitation. The Town of Greenburgh will provide training to key drug court staff. The state and national level training will equip the team to improve upon their abilities to deliver court services. They will also enhance staff's ability to conduct outreach in surrounding communities. This initiative aims to educate the public and law enforcement personnel about the court.
