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 Indio will utilize the FY 2014 JAG funds to support the city's Smart Policing Initiative (SPI) burglary and truancy prevention efforts. The funding will be used to fund an existing part-time SPI Community Outreach Coordinator position. The part-time coordinator will continue the implementation of burglary and truancy prevention efforts in the SPI target area. NCA/NCF
