Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $40,770)

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 the award to support the Holiday Robbery Task Force. Funds will be used to support the cost of overtime for officers who will be deployed in targeted areas. These officers will provide high visibility patrols and serve as a crime deterrent. The project goals are to reduce the number of serious crimes that occur during the holiday season and make citizens feel safer in their communities. NCA/NCF
