Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $165,296)

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 law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to purchase and install law enforcement equipment. The project goal is to increase essential law enforcement services. In addition, a portion of funds will be used for personnel costs to support community service officers. The goal of this effort is to provide for a safer community through increased officer presence.
