Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $410,828)
The Missouri Department of Public Safety will utilize its FY 2012 JABG allocation as follows: 5% ($20,541.00) for administrative purposes; 75% ($292,715.25) to be awarded to units of local government as pass-through funds; and the remaining 20% $87,572.00) to be distributed on a competitive bid basis for state-wide programs in purpose areas 6 and 10.
Historically, the state has received pass-through funding for eight cities and counties. Clay County, Jackson County, and Kansas City combine funding to cover the Sentenced to the Arts Program and use the funds for purpose areas 15 and 17. St. Louis County utilizes funding in purpose areas 11 and 12 for a Juvenile Conference Committee and for substance abuse/mental health counseling. St. Louis City funds are used to monitor youth placed on curfew under purpose area 11. St. Charles County utilizes the funding under purpose areas 2 and 15 for detention center medical services, a restitution program, and treatment program for youth who abuse their parents. Springfield combines its funding with Greene County for one full-time deputy juvenile officer to work with youth and ensure accountability under purpose area 3. Boone County utilizes the funding under purpose area 11 for their art and music programs, security/monitoring, drug testing, and CBI-based classes. It is anticipated that these programs will be continued in some capacity, albeit at a lesser amount due to the decrease in JABG funding for 2012. Currently, Missouri's School Violence Hotline is being funded along with special training for law enforcement/court personnel. The plan is to utilize the 2012 funds, in coordination with remaining 2010 and 2011 funds to continue supporting the School Violence Hotline and training for law enforcement and juvenile court personnel.
