Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $614,107)

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 Cincinnati Police Department and Hamilton County have agreed to share their FY 2010 Justice Assistance Grant, and the city of Cincinnati will be the fiscal agent. They will use their funds for police visibility overtime and contractual services. This will provide extra police visibility throughout the city and for saturation during special events. The Sexual Assault Advocate will serve as a liaison between the victim, police and the court systems.

The Enhancing Adjudication will help to inform and provide the courts with safe community release options for detainees and offenders identified with medium risk and high need profiles, thereby reserving local jail resources for high risk, dangerous offenders who pose a threat to the local community.
