Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $10,140)

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 Norco will use the JAG award for officer overtime. This grant will help fund the community oriented policing program, which helps to improve the quality of life in the city. During this program, sworn officers will work with employees in related justice fields including FBI, DEA, state parole, state alcoholic beverage control, county probation, district attorney's office, city code enforcement and volunteer organizations. The goal of this program is to reduce crime by increasing the amount of law enforcement hours worked on community oriented policing programs and projects.
