Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $18,088)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states, tribes, and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own 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 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 programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The city of Lake Worth will use JAG funds to enhance the operations of the Shuffleboard Court community center.

Specifically, funds will be used to purchase desktop computers, software, accessories, and a printer for the center.

The purchases will allow low-income, at-risk children, their families, and resident seniors an opportunity to participate in various workshops and trainings that include gang prevention and a Citizens Police Academy.
