Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $67,088)

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 Alexandria, through the police department, will utilize the FY 2010 JAG funds for intervention and interdiction initiatives. Specifically, the Alexandria Police Department will use the funds to pay overtime to a special task force of officers who typically work undercover to interrupt and resolve emerging Part I crimes in the city. The goal of this project is to provide enhanced law enforcement services to the citizens of Alexandria.
