Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $11,148)

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 Revere will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $11,148 to contribute to the leasing of a patrol cruiser. Patrol cars are crucial to the police department and their ability to implement anti-crime prevention strategies. The cruiser will enhance police visibility, and provide the police department with the means to address crime and conduct daily police business. Moreover, the cruiser will be utilized to help monitor gang activity, vandalism, juvenile crime, potential terrorist threats, and identify offenders. The ultimate goal of the Revere Police Department's Community Policing Initiative is to identify, reduce, and prevent crime and violence within the city of Revere.
