Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $77,187)

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 Pomona will utilize the FY 14 Local JAG award to pay personnel costs for the Pomona Police Department's Forensics Unit. The primary goal is to continue the current full service support level and function of the police department's forensic unit to: (1) facilitate optimum investigative outcomes through the timely, advanced, and effective processing of major incident crime scenes, including evidence collection, preservation, and analysis; and (2) providing expert court testimony.
