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 Pico Rivera will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $12,559 to offset the costs of the Safety Through Our Perseverance (S.T.O.P.) deputy. The City has a contract with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to fund this specially trained deputy. The purpose of the S.T.O.P. Program is to provide immediate family crisis intervention, resource referral services, victim assistance, threat assessment, and safety planning for families in crisis.
