Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $51,155)

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 city of Bremerton will use the JAG award to pay the yearly salary of a part-time community resource specialist assigned to the Landlord Notification Unit. This unit is responsible for notifying owners when criminal activities occur at one of their rental properties. The officer will patrol for all ranges of offenses from breaking and entering to assaults.
