Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $9,982,627)

The purpose of the FY 2010 G20 Summit Security Assistance Reimbursement Grant Program is to reimburse state and local public safety agencies for the costs of providing security during the G20 Summit that took place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on September 24-25, 2009. The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is reimbursing state and local public safety agencies for security related costs including: overtime compensation for law enforcement officers, associated equipment, supplies (including protective equipment and portable radios), detention costs (including medical personnel, food services, and supplies), and other extraordinary law enforcement-related costs necessary to provide security for the G20 event.

The city of Pittsburgh was selected to host the G20 Summit on September 24-25, 2009. The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police (PBP) was designated as the lead local public safety agency, and in conjunction with numerous other public safety agencies from within Pennsylvania and other states, was tasked with ensuring the safety of the residents, visitors, public safety officials, protestors, and visiting dignitaries. This project will enable the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD), the Pennsylvania State Administering Agency, to reimburse a substantial portion of the security-related costs that were assumed by the city of Pittsburgh and public safety agencies within Pennsylvania.
