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 award to partially fund a Youth Accountability Board (YAB) Program Coordinator position. The goal of YAB Program is to provide mentoring and early intervention services for non-violent, at-risk juvenile offenders. The YAB Program Coordinator is a key component of the YAB program. The YAB Program Coordinator responsibilities include: reviewing case files, interviewing family members, record keeping management, and coordinating the calendar for the Youth Accountability Board. The Program Coordinator is the liaison between the Pasadena Mental Health Center and the Pasadena Police Department.
