Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $12,210)

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).

Hancock County and the city of Findlay have been designated as a disparate jurisdiction for awarding purposes. In a disparate situation such as this, the city and county must determine allocation of funding and submit a single, joint application. Grant funds will be directed towards enhancing law enforcement services provided to the community. For administration purposes, the city will serve as the fiscal agent for the award, and in this capacity will be responsible for grant management and oversight.
