Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $738,260)

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 and county of Honolulu will use JAG funds to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of local law enforcement and prosecutorial operations in order to minimize and avoid reductions in essential services. Specific grant-funded projects include community outreach and public education in an effort to curb prostitution and drug dealing; implementation of smart policing data-driven law enforcement strategies; undercover criminal surveillance, investigation, and operations to reduce crime; and equipment purchases aimed at enhancing project operations and police technology.
