Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $11,004)

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 Nacogdoches is listed as a direct recipient of JAG funding under the FY 2010 JAG Local Program. The city will utilize JAG funds to purchase needed CompStat software for the Nacogdoches Police Department (NPD).

The CompStat Dashboard would allow the NPD to calculate crime trends and patterns. The ability to recognize trends and to monitor day-to-day activities and crimes would allow the NPD to compare statistics over defined periods of time. In addition, the department will be able to evaluate the success of crime fighting strategies and make informed decisions regarding how to improve public safety. The entire JAG award will be utilized to purchase the CrimeStat software package.
