The Bureau further extended the review period to May 15, 2020 as the application deadline was extended to May 29, 2020.  Following the conclusion of the public review period, the Bureau received two comments on the FY 2020 Byrne JAG Program Narrative.  The comments received requested consideration for video conferencing in response to the global pandemic of COVID-19 and social distancing requirements. Video conferencing will be an alternative to travel and in-person interactions between inmates, defendants, and all parties related to trials and judgment.

The Bureau of Statistics and Plans, in partnership with the Guam Department of Education, are implementing the 14th year of the Guardians of the Reef Program in 2019. Guardians of the Reef is a service learning program that trains participating high school students to conduct presentations to third grade students in the classroom setting about coral reefs, their importance to our island, the threats they face, and actions they can take to help preserve these valuable resources. 

 

The Guardians of the Reef training was held on Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm, at the Outrigger Guam Beach Resort.  In attendance were 75 high school students from Simon A. Sanchez, John F. Kennedy, Okkodo, George Washington, Southern, and for their first year participating in the program, Tiyan High School. The Guardians of the Reef are expected to begin conducting presentations for third grade students as early as February. In 2018, the Guardians of the Reef conducted presentations to over 2,400 third grade students. The Guardians of the Reef look forward to reaching more third grade students this year with the one additional high school that has joined the program.

The Bureau of Statistics of Plans is pleased to announce the FY 2017 & 2018 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program solicitation.  JAG funded projects may address crime through the provision of services directly to individuals and or communities and by improving the effectiveness and efficiency of criminal justice systems, processes, and procedures. The FY 2013-2016 Strategy for Drug Control, Violent Crime and Criminal Justice Systems Improvement Strategy, developed by the Bureau of Statistics and Plans, in collaboration with Guam’s criminal justice entities and resource agencies, reflects the use of JAG funds to support criminal justice initiatives on island.

 

The priorities addressed in Guam’s FY 2013–2016 Drug Control, Violent Crime and Criminal Justice Systems Improvement Strategy are law enforcement, prosecution and court programs, corrections and community corrections, drug treatment and enforcement, and planning, evaluation and technology improvement.   These priorities remain in effect until a new strategy is developed for 2019-2023.

 

The Bureau is initiating the request for proposals to allow the opportunity for interested applicants to submit project proposals consistent with the approved priority areas and the Bureau of Justice Assistance requirements. The proposed programs under each priority areas are as follows:

 

Law Enforcement Priority

  • Drug Court Program

Technology Improvement Priority

In addition, the Bureau will also take into consideration prior award performance in terms of goal achievement of individual funded projects, compliance with both fiscal and program reporting requirements, the timely expenditure of funds in accordance with approved budgets, compliance with the Office of Civil Rights requirements and other BJA grant award requirements.  

 

Proposals may be submitted by any established non-profit organization, faith-based organization, law enforcement, victim services, and substance abuse public agencies that are consistent with the approved BJA programs identified in the 2016 Byrne JAG Program Strategy Update.
