Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $161,561)

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 disparate jurisdictions will use their JAG funds to support the city and county to sustain and maintain basic law enforcement service delivery capacity in their respective jurisdictions. The county will sustain the employment of one sworn deputy in an effort to ensure basic service delivery capabilities. The city will replace outdated, high maintenance patrol vehicles.
