Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $23,697)

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 funds to support community policing, law enforcement overtime and to upgrade law enforcement equipment. Equipment upgrades and purchases will support improved communication and surveillance. These activities will aid in improving the ability of local law enforcement programs to efficiently and effectively combat drugs, violence, and crime. NCA/NCF
