Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $18,822)

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 Waukesha ($11,822) and the county of Waukesha ($7,000) will use their FY 2009 Local JAG funds for dug and crime prevention purposes. The city of Waukesha, serving as the fiscal agent, will use the funds to purchase training supplies, surveillance equipment, and information technology software. Waukesha County will use their funds to purchase emergency responder equipment/supplies, information technology software, and investigative support equipment (computer forensics). The primary focus is to establish and enhance existing programs that address violent crime, drug use and distribution, and gang activity.
