Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $17,006)

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 JAG funds to enhance its probation and alternative sentencing programs by purchasing new drug and alcohol electronic monitoring ankle bracelets. Funds will be used to purchase the equipment and related software to allow probation officers to have a higher level of surveillance for offenders who are more likely to abuse marijuana or alcohol while serving a probation or house arrest sentence.
