Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $666,082)

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).

South Dakota will continue to use a coordinated approach in developing, implementing, and monitoring the strategy for the Byrne JAG Program. The priorities for funding and the programs to be funded in whole or in part with Fiscal Year 2011 JAG funds include: the State Drug Task Force Program, various Criminal Justice Programs, a Statewide Drug Prosecution Program, and a Sex Offender Risk Management Program. This will increase the manpower and other resources needed to address the drug and violent crime issues facing the law enforcement community in the state, the prosecution community in the state, and based programming for adult offenders.
