Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $328,669)

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, consisting of Lucas County and the city of Toledo, will use the JAG funds to purchase tasers units and accessories to improve public safety functions and general patrol activities and to employ corrections officers for 12 months. The Criminal CJCC will release a Request for Proposal (RFP) announcing availability of $82,167.25 JAG funds. The Allocation Review Committee will select proposals for funding based on the applicant's ability to address local community and criminal justice system needs and priorities.
