Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $29,032)

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 city of Temecula will use JAG funds towards overtime for proactive enforcement operations targeting high interest violations. Specific operations include targeting tobacco and spray paint sales, truancy sweeps, and one annual on-site active shooter scenario-based training session. These operations will be conducted on an overtime basis to prevent any disruption to the daily obligations of the officers.
