Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $67,241)

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 the city of Roseville and Placer County will use the JAG award to purchase and install in-car-video and audio recording systems, digital storage to preserve recordings, and partially pay for a crime prevention coordinator to help reduce the number of property crimes by conducting a public awareness campaign. These funds will further assist the agencies in the collection of pertinent data for reporting Part I Uniform Crime information. The city of Roseville, acting as the fiscal agent for this grant, will divide funds equally with Placer County for the equipment purchases and coordinator position. The funds will enable the agencies involved to enhance public safety, reduce crime, and help protect officers in the line of duty.
