Abstract: This report focused on JAG grantee activities that were funded by the 64 percent of FYs 2009-2012 JAG funds allocated to the law enforcement program area to prevent or control crime, including supporting law enforcement programs, task forces, new personnel, and equipment purchases. Findings show that from April 2012 to March 2013, over 2,000 law enforcement programs were sustained using JAG grant funds; State and local grantees funding law enforcement programs reported primarily funding drug prevention, crime prevention, and community policing programs, in which over 300 new personnel were hired using grant funds; of the State and local grantees using JAG funds to buy equipment, most reported purchasing computers/mobile data terminals and computer software. Seventy four percent of individuals arrested based on task force activity were charged with a felony; 76 percent of those arrested on drug-related charges were charged with felonies; in total, 4,044 drug trafficking or other street gang organizations were disrupted and 1,263 were dismantled as a result of task force activity, in total, more than 7,000 gang members were arrested. Forty percent of firearms seized were traced through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF); State grantees funding task forces reported primarily funding drug task forces with JAG monies; and 57 percent of local grantees funded other types of task forces, including anti-gang activities.
