Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $10,679)

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 village of Carol Stream will use the JAG award to train police personnel and purchase supplies to increase the efficiency of the police department. Plans are to send the crime prevention officer to community policing training and to arrange crime analysis training for the crime analyst in order to increase crime prevention and response efficiency. Funding will also be used to upgrade existing surveillance equipment and provide tools necessary to adequately respond to and proactively act against narcotics trafficking and sexual exploitation of children.
