|DA grants total $150,000|
Dist. Atty. Brad Burget said his office has obtained more than $150,000 in grants this year for victim services, computers and a software management system.
The most recent grants approved were in the amounts of $50,000 from the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement (LCLE) and $30,763 from the Red River Delta Law Enforcement Planning Council Inc. (RRDLE).
The LCLE grant is for the program designed to assist in the prevention of violence against women. Burget said that the funds will used for additional prosecutorial support in working cases involving dating violence, domestic violence and sexually assault against women.
"This is part of stimulus money," said Burget.
The RRDLE grant is for a pre-trial intervention programs.
"Basically, as alternative to prosecution this pre-trial program will divert certain first time offenders from traditional criminal justice processing to a program of supervision that involves anger management, counseling and other educational components that will prevent the offender from repeating and from remaining a drain on the system," said Burget.
Burget said the DA's office had previously received a grant of $60,000 for a computer management system from the Louisiana District Attorney Association.
"We're in the process of implementing this system now," he said. "This will enable us to better track all cases which we now do somewhat archaically on paper and with handwritten notes on a calendar. This automated systems will put all of our cases at our fingertips, will make us more efficient and save money in handling collection fees and court courts."
A $5,800 federal grant, also for the program to prevent violence against women, is being used for equipment and computers.
