Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $10,056)

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 Colton, through the Colton Police Department, will enhance a new off-site office where several youth services programs and coordinators will be located. The new office will provide much needed access to youth services programs for residents who live in the southeast portion of the city. This new office will compliment all of the youth services programs and will work in conjunction with the Colton Police Activities League (PAL) programs scheduled to be included in a new Teen Center, which will be opened in the central portion of the city. Funds will be used to purchase computers, a building alarm system, an after-hours access system, and miscellaneous office equipment.
