Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $25,108)

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 of Roseville will use the FY 2012 JAG funds to support crime prevention and public education, with the goal of reducing property crimes, thus decreasing the City's crime rate as a result of increased public awareness. Roseville residents and the business community will be better informed about crime trends and patterns, and how to protect themselves and their property from criminals. Activities will include: citizen police academies, neighborhood watch formation and maintenance, crime prevention newsletters, neighborhood association outreach, and community events (representing the police department).
