Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $14,659)

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 the JAG award to obtain the equipment, training and personnel necessary to allow officers to build an electronic database so that successful crime analysis may be accomplished. The crime analysis will allow the police department to more effectively target resources to not only address crime but address disorder and other minor problems before they become more serious criminal problems.
