Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $24,208)

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 Everett will use its Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award to support the Everett Police Department's Hot Spot Enforcement and Technology Improvement project. The grant funds will cover overtime expenses for officers to conduct hot spot enforcement and to purchase and install necessary computer software. The main objective of the project is to conduct hot spot enforcement with additional officers on the street, in an effort to address quality of life crimes such as street-level drug dealing, public drinking, residential and commercial breaks, drag racing, and other seasonal issues throughout the community. The purchase of software will allow the Department to get online and consequently improve the investigative capacity.
