Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $17,460)

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 grantee will use the grant to support the Monroe County Drug Court Program (MCDCP). Specifically, case management software and computer hardware will be purchased. The goal of this project is to use this new technology to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of drug treatment and case management activities conducted by the MCDCP, by comprehensively tracking participants' detailed histories, court and treatment activities, and participants' responses to specific interventions. The collected data with this technology upgrade will be analyzed and utilized programmatically to evaluate and make modifications in an effort to improve participant performance and success and increase the overall efficacy of the program.
