Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $12,581)

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 disparate jurisdictions of the City of Utica and Oneida County will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 Justice Assistance Grant award in the amount of $12,581 to support a collaborative partnership between the Utica Police Department and the Oneida County Department of Probation in an effort to prevent violent crime and improve the quality of life for the community. Specifically, funds will be directed towards overtime salaries of a police officer and a county probation officer who will be partnered together in order to provide intensive supervision of youth and adult offenders sentenced to the county electronic monitoring device program as a means of an alternative to incarceration. The team will conduct surprise home visits to ensure compliance with the terms of probation. For purposes of this grant, the Police Department has been designated as the fiscal agent, responsible for award administration.
