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 recipient will use award funds to support a part-time Community Resource Coordinator, implement technology enhancements, and purchase community outreach educational materials. The goals of this project are to provide residents with a better understanding of the mission and overall operations of the Police Department, enhance community interaction by heightening visibility of law enforcement services and partnerships with police. Collectively, these strategies meet unfunded needs and will increase police visibility and community involvement,and create a safer and more secure City.
