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 village of Southern View will use funding to bring the police department's aging fleet of patrol vehicles and related equipment up to standard with the latest technology and to ensure that officers were well trained to meet the many challenges of policing. The equipment and training are expected to have a significant impact on the incidence of crime and juvenile delinquency and on aiding individuals and businesses that have been victimized by crime. Well trained officers, using state-of-the-art technology and equipment, will be better able to serve the citizens of Southern View and to have a positive impact on the quality of life of citizens in the village and surrounding areas.
