Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $27,964)

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 Rancho Cordova will utilize the FY 2013 Local JAG funds to help implement a Community Prosecution Program (CPP). The CPP will allow the implementation of correctional alternatives currently unavailable in the community in order to prosecute low-level offenders who are currently unpunished in the Sacramento County criminal justice system.
