Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $45,262)

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 utilize the JAG award to support law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to purchase in-car scanners, in-car computers, and a video system. JAG funds will also be used to support the facilitation of the Santa Fe Coordinated Community Response Program. The project goals are to enhance law enforcement activities while maintaining safety of law enforcement officers and to improve community awareness and education around issues of domestic, sexual, and dating violence and stalking.
