Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $10,738)

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 funds to cover the cost of contracting with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for all law enforcement assistance and personnel. The grantee does not maintain a city police force and must unite with the county to continue their effort in maintaining law and order within the jurisdiction. The purpose and goal of this project is to address the areas of crime prevention, gang activity, organized crime, violent crimes, and the overtime coverage of sworn officers to carry out Anti-Gang Suppression.
