Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $10,665)

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 town of Riverdale Park will use their 2010 JAG award to purchase three workstations for the purpose of increasing the number of police department personnel who can review officers' reports for accuracy, and enter them into the records management system for distribution to officers in the field. Funds will also be used to support the University of Maryland College Park's Public Safety Training and Technical Assistance Program (PSTTAP) which provides officer's with training on completing and submitting programmatic and financial grant reports in a timely manner. This will save the RPPD's limited human resources for preventing and addressing crime in the Town.
