Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $42,412)

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).

Woodbridge Township, Edison Township, New Brunswick City, and Middlesex County have agreed that Woodbridge Township will serve as the fiscal agent for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 JAG award. The jurisdictions plan to collaborate to improve intelligence sharing among jurisdictions. The funds will be used to purchase software and equipment and provide training for the initiative. The goal is to create a shared website for police intelligence data that can help track and link common cases and suspects in the jurisdictions. This will allow officers to evaluate policing strategies responsive to changing community needs, conditions, and priorities.
