Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program:


FY 2013 Local Solicitation


The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program is a primary federal funding source to state and local jurisdictions for the purpose of criminal justice. JAG funding supports all components of the criminal justice system such as courts, corrections, and treatment. Furthermore, these funds are available to support crime prevention programs in addition to improving the effectiveness and efficiency of criminal justice systems, processes, and procedures. The Bureau of Justice Statistics calculates, for each state and territory, their share of violent crime and population to derive at the initial JAG allocation. Dividing each state’s final award amount, it is then computed to 60 percent of the allocation to be awarded to the state and 40 percent to eligible units of local government. Lastly, the local government award allocation is based on their proportion of the state’s 3-year violent crime average. Therefore, under this local JAG solicitation, the eligible joint allocation for El Paso County totals $269,929. Of this, the City of Colorado Springs (CSPD) is allocated $198,127 and El Paso County (Sheriff’s Office) is $71,502. We’d like to share with you, as a requirement of the grant, what the Sheriff’s Office has submitted for purchase.

Therefore, under this local JAG solicitation, the eligible joint allocation for El Paso County totals $293,635. Of this, the City of Colorado Springs (CSPD) is allocated $206,343 and El Paso County (Sheriff’s Office) is $87,292.
