Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $20,252)

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 primary goal of the proposed project is to provide Revere residents with a better understanding of the mission and overall operations of the Revere Police Department and in turn work to enhance the Departments relationship/partnership with the community and create a safer and more secure City. In addition, the Department will work directly with residents on issues concerning public safety. This will foster positive interactions between law enforcement and the general public and result in a more positive perception of law enforcement.

The grantee will utilize JAG funds to maintain a part-time Community Resource Coordinator position and to heighten law enforcement services and increase police visibility within the City.
