Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $29,440)

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 Rialto will utilize its Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $29,440 to implement a crime analysis program. The crime analysis program will assist the Rialto Police Department's Crime Analysis Unit to become a more pro-active intelligence unit rather than a reactive information processing unit. The program is designed to provide crime analysis personnel with the most up-to-date advanced software programs to focus on criminal enterprise cases to include: street gangs, narcotics, trafficking, organized crime cartels, and terrorist organizations. Implementation will require $13,000 of the JAG funds. The remaining funds will be used for additional technology-related equipment to include computers, printers, and map plotters.
