Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $22,745)

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).

Monroe County will use the FY 2010 JAG funds to support the Sheriff's Operation Safe Monroe County 2010 and community policing programs. Funds will support overtime for law enforcement patrols in the neighborhoods and subdivisions and on the major interstates and highways in the county. The community policing program includes prevention and education initiatives, and funds will be used for materials that will be distributed to residents at the county fair and other community events. Crime mapping information will be prepared and posted on the Sheriff's webpage to keep residents informed about crime in the community. These initiatives are expected to reduce crime and increase safety throughout the county.
