Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $51,801)

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 city and county of Erie will share this Fiscal Year 2012 JAG award. The major goal of the project is to ensure consistent delivery of public safety and law enforcement services to the local jurisdictions involved. Funding will be used directly to buy equipment such as tasers, a police cruiser, and a universal forensic extraction device. NCA/NCF
