Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $241,043)

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 and county of Honolulu will expend its Fiscal Year 2008 JAG funds on multiple law enforcement and criminal justice initiatives, including a project in the Department of the Prosecuting Attorney. This project will pay the salaries of prosecutors in the drug court and community prosecution programs. JAG funds will also be used to pay for police overtime, training, equipment, and weapon purchases.
