Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $35,769)

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 Revere will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $35,769 to maximize grant administration for the Revere Police Department by supporting a Grant Administrator position. Another goal of the program will be to maintain the current capacity of the police department and to ensure that all reporting is prepared, submitted, and filed in a timely manner, including all financial and progress reports for grant programs. The Department will meet this goal by maintaining proper staffing to continue comprehensive administration of all grants for the Department.
