Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $3,467,699)

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 goals for the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute's JAG Program are to: (1) to enhance Indiana's criminal and juvenile justice systems through evidence-based programming, (2) to deliver technology to state and local jurisdictions to enhance criminal justice information sharing efforts. Major objectives to reach these goals will be based on the funding decisions for programs which fit within broad priority areas ICJI has designated. The following objectives have been set by ICJI for Fiscal Year 2014 JAG program activities: 1) Support technology initiatives that will enhance criminal justice data collection, analysis and information sharing, and
2) Encourage intelligence-led law enforcement programming, which will improve cross-jurisdictional cooperation and coordination, designed to deplete and prevent crime in Indiana communities. NCA/NCF
