Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $25,046)

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 city of Paramount will utilize the FY 2013 Local JAG funds to supplement overtime in order to conduct regular parole and probation compliance checks; and to conduct curfew and truancy sweeps throughout the city of Paramount. This strategy will meet unfunded public safety needs, and it will serve to reduce area crime and violence. By reducing crime and violence, the overall quality of life in the city of Paramount will continue to improve.
