Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $2,670,477)

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 program 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 Oklahoma District Attorney's Council will use the FY 2013 JAG award to reduce the importation, manufacturing, trafficking, distribution, and possession of illegal drugs and controlled substances throughout the state; reduce the violence related to gangs through prevention, enforcement, and prosecution; assist local law enforcement through the procurement of equipment as prioritized by the JAG Board; encourage innovative law enforcement projects that address violent crime control and to encourage innovative prosecution projects that address drugs and the resulting violent crime. In addition, funds will be used to improve the integration of criminal history records between criminal justice agencies, and to reduce prison recidivism by providing effective drug and alcohol treatment for incarcerated juvenile and/or adult offenders. Collectively, these strategies meet unfunded needs and will serve to reduce area crime and violence.
