Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $41,362)

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 Rosebud Sioux Tribe will use their 2014 JAG funds to implement a neighborhood watch program. By implementing a neighborhood watch program in each community, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe can assist the police, the courts and most importantly, the community members. The community members will be encouraged to take ownership of the problems and become an integral part of the solutions. The neighborhood watch program will be utilized to report juveniles out after curfew hours, monitoring vacant homes, reporting house parties and violence in the communities. NCA/NCF
