Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $11,595)

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 Baldwin Park will use its Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $11,595 to purchase office supplies for the Baldwin Park Police Department. The police department has been given a store front office in a shopping center to be used as a police sub-station. The police department plans to utilize this location as its base of operation for the Crime-Free Multi-Housing Program. This program is a state-of-the-art crime prevention program designed to help tenants, owners, and the managers of rental properties keep drugs and other illegal activity off their multi-housing properties. The police department will purchase laptop computers, a color printer, copier and fax machine, and several workstations.
