Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $200,000)

The Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects recommended by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-117, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 2010 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY2010 Department of Justice Appropriations Act.

The city of Annapolis will use their 2010 Congressional Selected Award to support the Capital City Safe Streets (CCSS), a partnership among federal, state, county, and local public safety agencies to prevent crime and to enforce the law. Grant funds will be use to: purchase computers, software, and a printer for the Stanton Community Center; pay for materials, demonstrations, and personnel to carry out community events; provide overtime funding for officers on patrol and in specialized units; and support the salary for an information technology project manager to stand up new technologies to provide police department personnel with modern tools to execute duties.
