Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $65,684)

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).

Trenton City and Mercer County are classified as disparate jurisdictions and will share the Fiscal Year 2008 JAG grant award. Trenton City will serve as the fiscal agent to administer the grant funds. The JAG funds will be utilized to pay the salary of a Consultant, fund the Crime Information Warehouse project, and purchase three IBM Crime Information Warehouse Cognos, ReportNet, and PowerPlay business application software packages and licenses. The equipment purchases will allow the agencies to analyze and view data using their own specifications as it pertains to the location, date, signal, priority, offender/victim relationship, domestic violence relation, and call-for-service holding time.
