Notice of Intent to Award Funds to the Department of State Police

August 17, 2018 - The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS) intends to award up to $82,000 in federal Byrne Justice Assistance Grant 2014 funds from the less than $10,000 variable share which will benefit the MA cities and towns as identified by the Bureau of Justice Assistance to the Department of State Police.  The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS) is committed to prioritizing funds to address the ongoing heroin and opioid epidemic plaguing the Commonwealth.  This award is another example of that commitment.    

These funds will enable the Department of State Police to replenish their diminishing supply of Narcan which will be distributed to all barracks throughout the Commonwealth and ensure that our officers continue to remain outfitted with this life saving product. 

Any questions or concerns about this award should be emailed to Kevin Stanton, Deputy Executive Director, EOPSS Office of Grants and Research at: kevin.stanton@state.ma.us

 

Notice of Intent to Award Funds to the Massachusetts Department of Corrections

August 17, 2018 - The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS) intends to award up to $54,070.20 in federal Byrne Justice Assistance Grant 2014 funds from the set aside share designated for state priorities to the Massachusetts Department of Corrections (DOC). DOC falls under the authority of the EOPSS and has expressed great need for the purchase and dissemination of Bulletproof Vests for their correctional officers.  DOC does not have state funds available to fulfill this critical need and without this award, they would be unable to provide this safety equipment at this time.  As required by the Department of Justice, only units that have a mandatory wear policy in effect will be outfitted with these safety vests.  DOC has such policy in place and is in compliance with such federal rules and regulations.    

This award will enable the Commonwealth to adequately address the intent of these federal public safety dollars as relevant to the applicable JAG purpose areas.  EOPSS is assured that vests proposed to be purchased by DOC will meet the standards of safety as dictated by the Department of Justice.   

Any questions or concerns about this award should be emailed to Kevin Stanton, Deputy Executive Director, EOPSS Office of Grants and Research at: kevin.stanton@state.ma.us

Notice of Intent to Award Funds to the Sex Offender Registry Board

August 17, 2018 - The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS) intends to award up to $97,900.00 in federal Byrne Justice Assistance Grant 2014 funds from the set aside share designated for state priorities to the Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB). SORB falls under the authority of the EOPSS and has expressed this request as a great need due to not having the state funds available to allocate and resolve. Currently the agency is unable to purchase and/or upgrade this much needed video conferencing equipment that is utilized to conduct sex offender classification hearings.  The current equipment is outdated and some is nonoperational.  This equipment/technology is considered vital to the effectiveness of the agency’s operation.

This award will enable the Commonwealth to adequately address the applicable JAG purpose areas while adhering to federal grant compliance with allocating funds for equipment and technology upgrades to state criminal justice departments in great need. 

Any questions or concerns about this award should be emailed to Kevin Stanton, Deputy Executive Director, EOPSS Office of Grants and Research at: kevin.stanton@state.ma.us
