Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $23,840)

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 grant to hire and train a part-time Crime Prevention Specialist. This position will assist in developing and promoting positive community relations and interaction through proactive policing techniques; assist by canvassing neighborhoods to identify problems and seek solutions; attend community meetings; act as a liaison for community agencies; and conduct special events to foster and increase community relations.
