Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $10,499)

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 Palm Springs will utilize the FY 2010 JAG funds to enhance law enforcement. Specifically, grant funds will be used to procure the training and equipment to train police department personnel to respond to high-risk drug arrests and search warrant incidents. The village will acquire training for officers of the Palm Springs Police Department to get certified to conduct high-risk entry and arrest warrants; acquire training for supervisory and command staff to manage the deployment of officers during high-risk entry and arrest warrants; and acquire covert GPS surveillance equipment capable of tracking subjects without the need for labor intensive surveillance operations.
