Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $18,920)

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 these funds to assist adult and juvenile probation clients who are repeat offenders and who come through the tribal court on alcohol and drug related offenses by purchasing alcohol ankle monitoring bracelets and other equipment to be used for drug and alcohol testing. NCA/NCF
