Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $27,132)

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 law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to pay for increased overtime of uniformed foot patrols in high risk neighborhoods. The project goals are to prevent, control and suppress street crime, particularly gang and drug related criminal activity; and to provide a safe and healthy environment for economic growth and recovery in at-risk neighborhoods.
