Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $139,510)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Lane County and Eugene city will use their Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award in the amount of $139,510 to purchase a format printer, a high-density inventory storage system, and a crisis response throw phone system. Eugene city will use their share of the JAG award to pay the yearly salary and benefits for one Communications Officer in the police department. Both agencies will provide funding for contracted analytical support for the Public Safety Coordinating Council (PSCC).
