Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $11,372)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states, tribes, and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own local needs and conditions. Grant funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The City of West Hollywood intends to utilize its fiscal year 2008 JAG grant funds to support the City Parks Patrol Program. Specifically, these funds will be spent on deputies working overtime shifts in the city's parks to address criminal transient issues, quality of life issues, and other criminal issues that arise. The funding should provide approximately two to three months of enforcement otherwise not available.
