Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $22,915)

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 city of Titusville, through its Police Department, will utilize their 2016 JAG funding for selective overtime initiatives to reduce property and violent crime. These grant funds will continue to provide scheduled overtime initiatives that will enable the Police Department to increase the number of officers that can be used, and/or extend their ability to search for violent crime offenders; apprehend local career criminals and others with active warrants.
