Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $761,900)

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 2012 JAG funds will be used to maintain safer communities through technology and personnel. Priority focus areas for resources will be law enforcement, housing code enforcement, community service, and the State's Attorney's Office. Funds will be used to expand crime prevention capacity through continuation of successful community-based crime prevention programs, and through the creation and preservation of job positions associated with crime reduction strategies.
