Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $58,267)

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 Bonneville County Sheriff's Office will use 2012 JAG as start-up funds for a health, wellness, and physical fitness program. The first step in this program is the purchase and installation of aerobic equipment such as treadmills, stationary bicycles, and elliptical machines. The long term project goal is to create a fully functioning program that encompasses all aspects of officer health & wellness through strategic planning. The Idaho Falls Police Department's (IFPD) equipment update program's goal is to enhance the agency's ability to complete daily tasks of serving and protecting the community in a more safe and efficient way.
