Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $42,303)

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 awarded JAG funds to implement extra police walking patrols in identified high crime areas. The objectives of the project are twofold. First, the extra patrols will increase police visibility and serve as a crime deterrent. Second, the patrols will facilitate an increase in positive interaction between police officers, members of the community and relevant community stakeholders.
