Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $20,117)

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 the FY 2011 JAG funds to support Operation "Safe Streets" and Youth, Police Initiative (Y.P.I.). The YPI program will pair youth and police officers in a best practices program that improves police/youth communication and decreases crime. The Operation Safe Streets Program will deploy additional police officers to high, violent crime areas of the Village to decrease violent crime rate.
