Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $15,143)

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 Hemet will utilize their 2008 JAG funds to purchase a desk officer online reporting system by Coplogic. This software allows citizens to file crime reports online. By filing eligible reports online, the citizens no longer have to wait for an officer to respond and can file their own reports. The City will use their funds in conjunction with state grants to fund the program. The result of this project will be decreased call volume, improved officer response time, and an increased level of service to the citizens.
