Funds awarded through the Recovery Act Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (Recovery-JAG) have been expended and the project is complete. Funds were originally proposed to support 10 projects. Subsequently, and as a result of the economic downturn, the City’s had to address revenue challenges. As a result, the initial proposed projects were not met through Recovery-JAG grant funding. Instead, funds were used to meet the primary stated purpose of stimulus funding which is to preserve jobs and to help stabilize local government budgets.

The Richmond Police Department has a total of 753 sworn officers responsible for law enforcement in the City of Richmond. While each of those officers has enforcement responsibilities, it is often stated that those officers who patrol the community each day are at the core of public safety. The RPD, in addition to the Office of Chief of Police, Support Services, Administration and Financial Management, has 2 defined patrol areas. Each patrol area is divided into 2 precincts and each precinct has 3 defined sectors. The patrol division consisting of Area 1 and Area 2 has approximately 400 officers. Recovery Act funding was used to directly offset the salary cost associated with sworn officers within the Patrol Division. 100% of funds were dedicated to the Patrol Division.
