Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $40,584)

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 Collier County Sheriff's Office will use its JAG award to fund overtime and provide benefits for personnel. Overtime shifts will help maintain a low crime rate in areas with an increasing number of visitors and residents. JAG funding will help ensure public safety through increased patrols and visibility of law enforcement officers.
