Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $60,446)

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).

JAG funds will be used to purchase equipment and supplies, provide training, and fund personnel costs for a General Prosecutor. The goals of the project are to provide law enforcement officers with the necessary equipment to more efficiently and effectively enforce the laws of the community and decrease the current case backlog in local courts.
