Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $423,859)

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 funds to support law enforcement initiatives. The Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) will coordinate all programmatic activities involving the approved program activities. The city of Toledo Police Department will use funds to purchase police motorcycles and supporting equipment. The Lucas County Sheriff's Office will use funds to employ corrections officers. The CJCC will release a Request For Proposal (RFP) announcing availability of JAG funds to local government and community agencies to address local community and criminal justice system needs.
