Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $66,652)

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 New Haven Police Department will utilize the City of New Haven's Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award to continue the Tactical and Administrative Strategies through Crime Analysis (TASCA) problem solving model that will be altered to provide a more cost- effective and efficient problem solving venue for police. In addition, the city will be able to continue the wireless transmission and internet access for police sites in the community. The proposed project will have an impact on the entire city of New Haven.
