Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $214,021)

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 county, serving as the fiscal agent for this award, will share this Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award with six disparate jurisdictions within San Mateo County. In a disparate situation, the units of local government must apply for an award with a single, joint application. Each jurisdiction's allocation will be used for activities and projects that will provide meaningful and measurable outcomes consistent with the goals of JAG to include funding overtime, as well as the purchases of software, digital cameras, Electro-Muscular Disruption Technology Devices, High Speed Wireless Network, and Property Containment and Tracking. The county will also use the award to pay for costs associated with managing the grant.
