Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $13,513)

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 Winnebago Tribe will use JAG funds to fund a volunteer group to assist the Police Department. Specifically the volunteer group will patrol designated areas and host neighborhood meetings to increase two-way communication with the Tribal Police Department. Prevention programs will be established to increase parental involvement.
