Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $31,039)

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 Hemet will utilize the FY 2014 JAG award to design and equip a Critical Incident and Crime Management Center (CICMC) inside the police facility. In an effort to more effectively manage critical public safety incidents, the CICMC will serve as a hub for key public safety officials to oversee and analyze critical incidents as they unfold. The Center will also be used on a daily basis for crime and incident management, in an effort to predict and prevent crime, and deploy public safety resources more efficiently. NCA/NCF
