Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $39,575)

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 city of Roseville will use JAG funds for law enforcement initiatives for the Roseville Police Department. Specifically, JAG funds will be used to fund a portion of the salary of a civilian community service officer (CSO) assigned to the patrol division. The CSO takes non-emergency cold crime reports and non-injury traffic collision reports, helps with traffic control at incidents, enforces parking regulations, and other duties in support of the patrol division. JAG funds will also be used to fund a part-time temporary classification of CSO assigned to the investigations division. This CSO manages the department's bait property program. The goal of this program is to increase the apprehension of thieves by placing alarmed, traceable bait property in areas experiencing a high number of property crimes. Both CSO positions support the department's front line law enforcement efforts and free sworn police officers to do other duties.
