Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $99,357)

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 utilize the JAG award to fund a criminal intelligence analyst, program coordinator, overtime for patrol officers, and a sports utility patrol vehicle. The project goal is to provide for a safer community through increased officer presence and utilize available technology and data-driven policing to become a more proactive and efficient police agency.
