Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $1,500,000)

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 New Hampshire Department of Safety's goals for their FY 2009 Congressionally Selected Award are to reduce and deter serious crime in New Hampshire by supporting specialized enforcement units with the tools they need to investigate and successfully prosecute crimes in the state; enhance the New Hampshire State Police's ability to support local law enforcement's efforts by having effective specialized units and methods for addressing the increased level of crime and drug trafficking that span several New Hampshire communities and may have links to out of state criminal activity; improve the Division's ability to fulfill its role as the primary law enforcement agency responsible for statewide drug and major crime investigations; and enhance and improve information sharing among local, county, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.
