Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $130,936)

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 city of New Brunswick, serving as the fiscal agent for this award, will share the Fiscal Year 2011 JAG award with five disparate jurisdictions. In a disparate situation, the units of local government must apply for an award with a single, joint application. It is the goal of the disparate jurisdictions to use the allocated funds to support all components of the criminal justice system. The goal will be reached by funding projects which address law enforcement concerns through the provision of services directly to individuals and/or communities and by improving the effectiveness and efficiency of criminal justice systems, processes, and procedures. Funds will be used to purchase equipment, police patrol vehicles, and fund the partial salary of a crime analyst.
