Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $810,880)

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 South Dakota Office of the Governor will use the Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award to continue support for state and local initiatives in the following purpose areas: law enforcement; prosecution and court; and corrections and community corrections. The priorities for funding are to increase the manpower and other resources needed to address the drug and violent crime issues facing the law enforcement and prosecution community in the state through newly funded criminal justice programs and the continued funding of the State Drug Task Force Program and Statewide Drug Prosecution Program; and provide community based programming for adult offenders through continued funding of the Sex Offender Risk Management Program.
