Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $13,406)

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).

Campbell Campbell, in coordination with the Youth, Adult, & Community Services Department, will utilize the FY 2010 JAG funds to support community-based programs. The county will implement an evidenced-based program known as the Parent Child Nurturing Program (PCN). PCN is a comprehensive educational parenting course designed to establish nurturing relationships within at-risk families. Using a professionally-designed and nationally recognized curriculum, PCN facilitators educate parents on appropriate, positive parenting practices. Together with their teens, families learn nurturing communication strategies, how to recognize each other's needs, how to understand the period of adolescence, and ways to build their own personal power, self-esteem, and self-concept. Families also discuss pregnancy delay, sex, sexuality, AIDS, suicide, and peer pressure.
