Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $368,121)

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 Stockton, serving as the fiscal agent, and San Joaquin County have agreed to utilize the FY 2013 Local JAG award to continue funding a Countywide Firearms Reduction Consortium (CFRC) Program. The CFRC Program is being designed to incorporate a multi-agency approach to solving gun related crimes. Funds will be used to pay for various positions and overtime, including firearm examiner contractual services.
