Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $42,697)

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 Marin County and the city of San Rafael will share this FY 2010 Local JAG award in the amount of $42,697 towards law enforcement initiatives. The city of San Rafael, serving as the fiscal agent, will use $26,105 towards personnel support for the Gang Enforcement Team. Additionally, Marin County will use $16,592 towards personnel support for the Gang Enforcement Team. The goal of this project is to bring together members of the San Rafael Police Department and the Marin County Sheriff's Department to conduct operations within Marin County to curtail the rising gang activity. The team will conduct probation/parole searches in order to enforce no gang clauses in their terms of release and probation.
