Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $21,586)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Lebanon County and the city of Lebanon will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $21,586 to help pay salaries and retain employees. The city of Lebanon, serving as the fiscal agent, will use its share of the grant towards saturation patrols. The saturation patrols will be used to supplement the existing shift manpower in high drug and crime areas, areas of increased traffic congestion, and special events during times that have historical high call volumes. Lebanon County will use its portion to help retain the Central Booking Supervisor within the Lebanon County District Attorney's Office.
