The City of Pomona Police Department will use their Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 JAG award to continue paying a portion of the salary and benefits cost for three Civilian Crime Scene Investigator positions previously supported by FY 2007 JAG funds. All other remaining salary, benefits, and operating costs for all three Civilian Crime Scene Investigator positions shall be provided by the City of Pomona.
