Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $12,741)

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 Bremen County and the city of Waverly will utilize the JAG award in the amount of $12,741 to support law enforcement initiatives. The city of Waverly, serving as the fiscal agent, will use grant funds to purchase firearms, flashlights, holsters, stop sticks, and impaired driving goggles for the Waverly Police Department. JAG funds will assist policing efforts, as well as ensure the sustenance of essential services. Bremen County will receive no JAG funds.
