Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $10,773)

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).

With its $10,773 in Fiscal Year 2008 JAG funds, the city of Perris will funds its Special Enforcement Team. The current law enforcement contract between the city of Perris and Riverside County does not allow for proactive enforcement in specialized areas. Overtime costs will be used to supplement patrol, which will enable the Special Enforcement Team to continue their proactive enforcement.
