Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $23,287)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local governments, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and 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, including 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 and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The city of Banning will use JAG funds for officer overtime. Specifically, the JAG funds will be used to cover overtime costs for associated police officers participating in Banning Police Activities League (BPAL) and Emergency Tactical Unit (ETU) training outside of their regular work hours. The goal of this project is to maintain the current staffing levels of the BPAL and the ETU to effectively work with the city's disadvantaged youth and maintain a state of readiness in order to effectively respond to critical incidents within the city.
