Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $35,725)

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 disparate jurisdictions will use these funds for the retention of law enforcement personnel assigned to the Missouri River Drug Task Force and costs associated with that activity. Both jurisdictions will use the funds for a portion of the salaries to support the Task Force's efforts to disrupt the distribution of illegal drugs and dismantle production organizations, which will contribute significantly to the overall success of the task force.
