lasd02113aThe City of Santa Clarita is seeking community feedback on a public safety grant proposal for the U.S. Department of Justice’s Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program. All public comments must be received by Friday, June 6, 2013.

The City of Santa Clarita is eligible to receive $26,749 from the U.S. Department of Justice’s JAG program, which is aimed at enhancing public safety. JAG allows states and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime, based on local needs and conditions. Funds may be used for hiring, training and maintaining personnel, as well as for equipment, supplies and more to improve overall crime prevention.

“JAG funding allows the City and Sheriff’s Department to continue successful crime prevention programs and explore new ways to further enhance public safety in Santa Clarita,” said Mayor Laurene Weste. “The City is providing an opportunity for residents to weigh in on the proposed programs and services outlined in the grant application before it is submitted.”

Proposed operations and strategies include, but are not limited to:

* Gang enforcement

* Drug Enforcement

* Vandalism and graffiti enforcement

* Probation/parole enforcement

* Unique patrol methods (T3, bike, foot and off-road) to patrol areas not easily accessible by patrol cars, such as parks, trails, paseos and the Santa Clara river

* Address daytime burglaries and other crimes perpetrated by minors

* Address the pawning or resale of stolen property

* Surveillance, undercover and sting operations, as needed

To view the JAG proposal, [click here]. To comment on the proposal, contact Tess Simgen at (661) 286-4157 or by email at tsimgen@santa-clarita.com.

    What are the conditions in receiving this money? How much interference from the Federal Govt. In executing the jag agreement there should be questions as to the extent of power the Govt., or Sheriff’s Dept., will have (drones, cameras, or whatever other invasive uses of force are to be used). It’s always good to have a strong public safety operational system but we the public want details.

    Show me the details

  4. Patrolling the bike paths is a good idea – I shouldn’t be fearful of riding my bicycle through certain sections of the bike path for fear of being assaulted.

  5. Can we not get dui’s for riding our bikes home instead of driving then?? The amount of inherent authority of the police here is a bit too much.

    You try to be a good citizen of this area, yet because of a technicality in the law, these police use any excise possible to belittle you and slap you with a fine before they bother going after the real criminals

    Technically people can’t even walk home if they are intoxicated they can be fined with “public intoxication”
    It really sucks if your intoxicated your basically stuck unless you have a designated driver but, there are idiot drunks out there which make these laws purposeful.
    Only if…
