Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $17,739)

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 disparate jurisdictions will utilize this JAG award to support law enforcement and alternatives to incarceration initiatives. Funds will be used to purchase tasers with holsters and cartridges. A small portion of JAG award funds will also be used to support salary costs for the coordinator of the Drug Court. The project goals are to enhance officer safety and sustain salary costs for an essential member of the Drug Court Team. NCA/NCF
