Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $3,507,346)

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 Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) will use the FY 2013 JAG award to enhance criminal and juvenile justice systems through evidence-based programming and deliver technology to state and local jurisdictions to enhance criminal justice information sharing efforts. The major goals of this program will be met by providing support for technology initiatives that will enhance criminal justice data collection, analysis and information sharing; encouraging intelligence-led law enforcement programming to improve cross-jurisdictional coordination and cultivating problem solving court initiatives embodying evidence-based re-entry strategies.
