Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $28,054)

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 Fontana, through the Police Department, will use their Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 JAG award to continue paying a portion of the salary and benefits cost for three police officers and two sergeant positions previously supported by FY 2007 JAG funds. These positions are assigned to patrol and traffic operations in the department to provide professional and efficient service to its citizens.
