Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $16,197)

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 Santa Fe Police Department will use the JAG grant to support its Coordinated Community Response Council against domestic and sexual violence (CCRC). The CCRC created several working groups to develop action plans to reduce crime and improve community safety. The city will use the grant funds to pay for: five hours per week of CCRC work group facilitation; supplies for the quarterly CCRC meetings; a nationally recognized speaker for the annual Faith Response to Domestic and Sexual Violence Conference; and the Youth Dating Violence Prevention Peer Education Project.
