Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $12,171)

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).

Yadkin County will utilize Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to support their Pretrial Release/Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Services (PTR/OSAT). The county of Yadkin will contract for gender-based, dual diagnosis, CBI and/or psycho-educational substance abuse group sessions that are part of required case plans for the program participants. Funds will also be used to provide drug screens and program materials for the treatment group participants. The goals of the project will be to promote public safety, reduce failure to appear/probation revocation rates and decrease illegal drug use among defendants and probationers who participate in the local Pretrial Release and/or Criminal Justice Partnership Programs.
