Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $529,726)

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 Salt Lake County and Salt Lake City will share the Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award in the amount of $529,726 towards law enforcement and technology initiatives. Salt Lake City, serving as the fiscal agent, will use $370,482 for law enforcement, prevention and education, planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs. Salt Lake County will use $159,244 for law enforcement, drug treatment and enforcement, planning evaluation, and technology improvement programs. The project goals are to assist both the city and county with their law enforcement initiatives and improvement of their criminal justice technology. Both jurisdictions will gain important training, purchase essential software programs and enhance their ability to serve their community.
