Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $22,128)

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 Pasadena Police Department will use Fiscal Year 2008 JAG funds to enhance the department's Tactical Patrol Squad. The department will utilize the funds for uniformed patrol officers, sobriety checkpoints, plain clothes surveillance, undercover decoy operations, liquor establishment inspections, and traffic enforcement. This continued support of police operations will enable the tactical squad to improve police-citizen relations in the Pasadena Area.
