Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $23,817)
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 Navajo County, Holbrook City, and Show Low City will use this JAG award to fund law enforcement initiatives. Navajo County, serving as the fiscal agent, will use the full award amount to fund overtime and training for task force members participating in the Major Crimes Apprehension Team (MCAT) led by the Navajo County Sheriff's Office. Holbrook City and Show Low City will receive no JAG funds.
