Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $11,016)

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 Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation will utilize its Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $11,016 to purchase tactical equipment. The tactical equipment will allow the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Police Department to better serve and protect their community which has experienced a significant increase in criminal activity. The department's current tactical equipment is outdated and cannot be used to counter the sophisticated drug trafficking organizations and gang activity on their reservation.
