Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $16,327)

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 the city of Stillwater and Payne County will utilize the JAG award in the amount of $16,327 to support the Payne County Drug Court. Grant funds will be used to purchase computer equipment and drug court training. Nationally recognized training will be provided for Payne County Drug Court employees, staff, and support personnel associated with the Drug Court Program, including police officers, judges, prosecutors and treatment providers. The project goals are to increase essential services throughout the county.
