Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $19,665)

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 Winooski will utilize its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $19,665 to pay the cost of advanced executive and supervisory training. This training will allow the management staff of the police department to stay current with management and leadership trends in policing. Also, the city has been notified by the state of Vermont that they will no longer provide e-mail server access for their police department, therefore they will also use JAG funds to install their own e-mail server.
