Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $887,364)

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 following jurisdictions are listed as disparate entities under the Fiscal Year 2010 JAG Local Program: Tarrant County, city of Fort Worth, city of Arlington, city of Bedford, city of Haltom City, city of Hurst, and city of North Richland Hills. The city of Fort Worth will serve as the fiscal agent to administer the JAG funds for all participating jurisdictions. A portion of the city of Fort Worth's allocation will be used for administrative costs.

The cities included in this application have worked on collaborative projects in the past including intelligence sharing, crime analysis, and juvenile and adult drug treatment. Local JAG funds will be used for law enforcement equipment (e.g., tasers, radios, police cruisers, lidar devices, etc.), drug court case manager services, and mental health personnel services.
