Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $48,849)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Dallas County and the city of Selma will use the JAG funds to deploy officers. Dallas County, serving as the fiscal agent, will spend their half of the funds to deploy officers to high crime areas. The city of Selma will use their funds for the same purpose. Both jurisdictions hope to identify and effectively and efficiently respond to high crime areas in an effort to make Dallas County and the city of Selma a safer community.
