Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $600,000)

The Congressionally Selected Awards Program, authorized by the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (Pub. L. 111-8), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects selected by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-8, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 09 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY09 Omnibus Appropriations Act.

The Boulder City Police Department will use the grant funds to construct a Regional Training and Shooting Facility. The Regional Training and Shooting Facility will significantly improve the training of law enforcement personnel in Southern Nevada. The additional training will lead to increased on-the-job safety as well as increased ability to provide a remote location for firearms training away from civilian community residents. The facility will be made available to various agencies and is ideal for building a cooperative effort in the fight against crime and terrorism.
