Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $12,417)

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 youth initiatives through the Georgetown Police Department. Funds will be used to purchase various supplies to run a summer camp that offers both educational and recreational programs to enrich the lives of the youth in the community. The project goals are to provide programs to all children which provides an opportunity for positive interaction with law enforcement, and also provide the opportunity for law enforcement to instruct and inform young people on the consequences of inappropriate and or delinquent type behaviors.
