Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $41,249)

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 awarded funds to increase motor vehicle law enforcement and gain increased compliance to those laws, resulting in safer streets for pedestrians, motorists, and bicyclists. The grantee will also use awarded funds to increase police presence with high visibility patrols in areas of repeated and continued gun violence in order to reduce such violence and retaliation shootings.
