Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $22,351)

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 this JAG award to enhance law enforcement and community programs. Specifically, funds will be used to hire a part-time Community Resource Coordinator and to purchase multi-purpose weapons cases for patrol vehicles. The project goals are to enhance the police department's relationship and partnership with the community and create a safer and more secure city.
