Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $43,182)

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 the salary and benefits of the Domestic Abuse Response Team (DART) Coordinator. This vital position is responsible for reviewing daily domestic violence reports to ensure that, once a domestic violence scene has been confirmed, the working partnership between sworn officers and the on-call advocates is both timely and effective. The project goal is to continue this vital assistance to all victims of domestic violence.
