Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $11,955)

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 grantee will use the JAG award to continue funding the Law Enforcement Exploring Program. The primary goal of this project is to enhance relationships between police officers and youth within this community. Funds will be used towards personnel, travel, and supply costs to provide career guidance to youth who may be interested in law enforcement as a career; provide and encourage youth to complete their high school and university educations; and provide an introduction to law enforcement to youth in the community within a structured environment.
