Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $26,284)

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 award to support law enforcement initiatives. Specifically, funds will be used to provide overtime for the Crime Suppression Unit, detectives and road patrol officers to reduce property and violent crime. Funds will also be used for increased attention for domestic violence follow-up and court order compliance checks, and support concentrated tracking and residential checks of local sexual predators.
