Annotation: This report reviews the extent of Utah's problems with drug abuse and violent crime, summarizes 1993 programs to counter these problems through funding under the Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Formula Grant Program, and profiles the 1994 programs to be implemented under this grant program.
Abstract: Generally, Utah youth and adults continue to use most drugs, including alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and cocaine at rates significantly lower than the rest of the Nation. Surveys show that the use of most drugs has declined since statewide data were collected in 1989. Programs that targeted illegal drug activities in Utah between July 1, 1992 and June 30, 1993, focused on education, prevention, treatment, enforcement, intelligence, and forensic lab support. Due to Congressional cuts in the formula grant allocations, Utah's funding for 1994 is approximately $500,000 less than the 1993 award ($3,057,000 compared to $3,580,000). Although this is a significant reduction, Utah has minimized its impact on most of the continuation programs. Programs to be funded in 1994 address current drug-control and violent-crime problems. Local programs will include multijurisdictional drug task forces, gang enforcement units, drug diversion units for first-time drug offenders, and a criminal history upgrade program. State programs pertain to the money laundering/financial crimes unit, intensive supervision/treatment programs for youthful offenders, crime lab personnel and equipment, alternatives to detention for youths, and drug treatment of adult offenders. Efforts to prevent and prosecute child abuse will also be funded in 1994.
