Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $13,279)

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 the prediction of crime trends and proactive policing. A subscription to PredPol Crime Prediction will continue to be supported that allows officers to be assigned to certain hot spots and allow the department to figure the probability of future crime locations, giving them the best chance of preventing crime.
