Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $10,308)

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 town of Lake Park will use the JAG funds to purchase eight floodlights and two additional cameras with monitoring equipment to complete the security project for Bert Bostrom Park. The goal is to discourage drug activity and lower the criminal activities in the area of the Town's recreation facilities, increase public safety, and increase the number of people and groups using the fields and children's programming at the park.
