Award Description: The New York City Mayor's Office of the Criminal Justice Coordinator (CJC) will serve as the applicant and administrator for the FY09 American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program for the City of New York. In order to coordinate citywide criminal justice policy and programs, CJC works closely with the City?s public safety agencies, including Police, Fire, Correction, the District Attorneys, and other government and non-profit agencies involved in the criminal justice system. New York City intends to use ARRA JAG funds to continue essential prosecution and court, law enforcement, drug treatment and enforcement, prevention and education, corrections and community corrections, technology improvement, and crime victim programs, many of which are currently funded through FY2008 JAG funds and were previously funded through the Local Law Enforcement Block Grant (LLEBG) and the Byrne Formula grant programs. Given the state of the economy and the expressed purpose of the ARRA to both create and sustain jobs, New York City is using grant funds to sustain as many essential programs and personnel as possible. All programs involve either the preservation or creation of new jobs.
Project Description: Project activities include prosecution and court programs, law enforcement efforts including drug treatment and enforcement and emergency call technicians, prevention and education programs, corrections and community corrections projects, technology improvement, and crime victim programs.
Jobs Summary: The ARRA JAG grant is funding positions in the criminal justice field throughout New York City including prosecutors, police communications technicians, correctional officers, and fire marshals. (Total jobs reported: 50)
