Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $445,413)

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 County of Riverside and the disparate jurisdictions will utilize the FY 2013 JAG funds to purchase needed equipment, make technological improvements and replacements, utilize funds for personnel costs that would otherwise be unfunded, and fund overtime for patrol officers assigned to community events.
