Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $11,571)

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 Beatrice and Gage County will utlize the FY 2010 JAG award in the amount of $11,571 to support the South East Area Drug Enforcement Task Force (SEADE). Grant funds will be used to pay for fringe benefits for a Gage County Sheriff's Office deputy that is a member of SEADE. The deputy serves as a full-time investigator who gathers intelligence on drug and violent crime, facilitates undercover drug purchases, conducts search warrants, makes arrests, and develops cases. The city of Beatrice will serve as the fiscal agent for this award.
