Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $231,564)

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).

Suisun City, serving as the fiscal agent for this award, will share the JAG funds with five disparate jurisdictions within Solano 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 the JAG program. The jurisdictions will fund hiring of personnel, forensic laboratory equipment, closed circuit cameras, electronic citation devices, a mobile data computer, in-car traffic radars, and overtime for law enforcement officers. Suisun City will also use part of the award to pay for costs associated with managing the grant.
