Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $124,360)

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 of Lane County and Eugene Oregon will use their $124,360 in FY 2011 JAG funds in equal proportions. Lane County will use its half of the funds to relocate a customer service window and renovate a jail fence. The city of Eugene will use their funds to provide analytical services to their public safety coordinating council, and to purchase a security door, patrol rifles, throw phones, and other equipment.
