Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $12,853)

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 city of San Fernando, through the San Fernando Police Department, will utilize its FY 2010 JAG award in the amount of $12,853 towards law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to hire a detective and officer for gang and narcotics investigations, as well as a supervisor for the Operations Team. The goal of this project is to launch program initiatives that are designed to prevent gang activities, and involvement with drugs such as narcotics.
