Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $100,863)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local government, 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 Butler County and the city of Hamilton will share this FY 2010 Justice Assistance Grant award in the amount of $100,863. The Butler County Sheriff's Office will serve as the fiscal agent, and will use their portion of the grant for personnel. The funds will assist with the rehiring of employees on the layoff call back list and/or to prevent further layoffs. The city of Hamilton Police Department will use their portion of the grant to purchase two new cruisers and equipment. The addition of the two marked cruisers is greatly needed by the city of Hamilton Police Department. Without the JAG funding, it would be impossible to purchase the cruisers, which are critically needed.
