Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $32,164)

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 will use the JAG award for law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to improve community and officer safety by providing maintenance, training, and purchasing range equipment to equip a multi-jurisdictional firearms range for departmental personnel. This will enhance firearms training capabilities, with the objective of providing skill development and training for police officers and improving firearm proficiency. NCA/NCF
