Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $70,632)

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 Pasadena is listed as a direct recipient under the FY 2010 JAG Local Program. The city will utilize JAG funds for law enforcement overtime operations. Specifically, the Pasadena Police Department will utilize grant funds to continue supporting the police department's Tactical Patrol Squad by funding officer overtime efforts. This unit identifies various community problems as they arise and develops a plan of action to address the problem through pro-active police work. The department's goal is to reduce UCR Part 1 crimes and reduce the fear of crime for the residents of Pasadena.
