Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $17,547)

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).

Josephine County Juvenile Justice Department will use JAG funding for a new pilot project that will offer probation and case management services to community youth involved with alcohol or drug offenses. The pilot is specifically tailored to first-time youth offenders adjudicated with alcohol or drug-related offenses. The goal of this project is to provide first-time youth offenders the opportunity to take responsibility for their actions, avoid a financial hardship, and access to a degree of mentorship that is frequently lacking from home and peers.
