Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $147,154)

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 Macomb County and the city of Warren will share the JAG award in the amount of $147,154 for crime prevention and control. The goals of the projects are to reduce future offending and to make local law enforcement more effective, resulting in safer communities. Macomb County, serving as the fiscal agent, will use its share to support a jail diversion program for prisoners with substance abuse issues and to replace outdated mobile computer terminals in patrol cars. The city of Warren will use its share for upgrading and replacing technology in the police department.
