Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $19,505)

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 of the city of Prineville and Crook County will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award to support criminal justice initiatives in the two jurisdictions. The city of Prineville will purchase a manual that has been developed by legal professionals in collaboration with law enforcement representatives to develop essential policies to meet all key operational needs within their department. Crook County will purchase twelve rifles and ammunition to enhance officer safety. JAG funds will assist local law enforcement agencies within Crook County to stabilize their local budgets and to ensure sustenance for essential services and prevent personnel cuts.
