Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $67,040)

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 this JAG award to support law enforcement initiatives. Specifically, funds will be used to support partial salaries towards hotspot patrols and policing through environmental design, as well as overtime for a records and property clerk. Funds will also be used to purchase crime prevention brochures and automated license plate readers. The project goal is to reduce the high incidence of crime within the City.
