PUBLIC NOTICE

Post Date:04/13/2012

Each year the State of Florida receives an allocation of funds from the US Department of Justice under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (Byrne/JAG) program. The State then passes these funds through to units of local government. The Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) has historically managed Byrne/JAG local grant allocations for all cities in Broward County.

The City of Fort Lauderdale Police Department will be receiving $100,683 in funding under the FY 2012 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant program. These funds can be used for a number of law enforcement purposes. The Fort Lauderdale Police Department proposes to use our FY 2012 Byrne/JAG allocation to purchase equipment and supplies in support of patrol operations, criminal and special investigations and technology improvements. The proposed distribution of these funds is listed below. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Public Safety Grants Manager Tymira Mack at 954-828-6705.
