Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $14,071)

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 this JAG award to support a canine replacement and training program. The goal of this program is to increase drug arrests and deter drug-related criminal activity through the use of canine narcotic detection and apprehension teams. This funding will help maintain the current level of service to the community without interruption and continue to take a proactive approach to deter drug-related criminal actively without interruption.
