Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $91,717)

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 their JAG grant to support and enhance the effectiveness of local law enforcement and the criminal justice system through planning and implementation of evidence-based strategies. JAG funding will specifically be used to enhance community policing and problem-solving strategies to improve safety. Further, purchases will include leadership training for officers, technologies to improve reporting and investigation, and equipment to enhance public protection and officer safety.
