Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $61,660)

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 utilize the grant to support law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to provide additional hours of high visibility and selective enforcement patrols in targeted areas throughout Norwalk. High visibility patrols will be used for greater police presence in areas of greatest need. The selective enforcement patrols will target motor vehicle law enforcement to increase compliance with motor vehicle laws. These patrols will help make the targeted areas safer so that the community can thrive.
