Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $39,076)

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 Sheriff Deputy overtime for two special details. The Party Car detail only responds to the party gatherings for complaints of noise, loud music, unruly behavior, excessive traffic, and other disruptions to the public peace, health, safety or welfare. The Anti-Cruising Patrol is also a seasonal detail specifically focused on hot weather months and holiday weekends. The detail focuses on major thoroughfares in the City and prevents nuisance, loitering, littering, and invasion of local business parking lots. The Sheriff’s Department deploys these patrols by trying to forecast when the biggest impact can be made, such as holiday weekends or during hot weather months. The goals of this project are to maintain Party Car patrol efforts to specifically combat party complaints and prevent parties from escalating into criminal activity; maintain Lynwood’s Anti-Cruising patrol of major thoroughfares in the City; and utilize policing resources for enhanced patrols largely affecting quality-of-life issues for the community.
