Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $207,706)

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 Saginaw County and the city of Saginaw will use JAG funds to sustain, support, and enhance law enforcement operations and service delivery systems. Saginaw County, serving as the fiscal agent, will use its share of funding to retain one sworn deputy position to continue providing basic law enforcement response services to the community. The city of Saginaw will use its share of funds for patrol vehicles, law enforcement leadership training and evaluation, annual expenses related to participation in the regional area records management information sharing network, and overtime for narcotics interdiction details.
