Annotation: Between July 1993 and June 1994, Idaho funded 43 projects under the Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Program which targeted the apprehension, prosecution, and incarceration of drug offenders.
Abstract: Planners realized that treatment and education, coupled with law enforcement, represented the only viable approach to solving the drug problem in Idaho. An attempt was made to fund projects with the potential to have considerable impact on the drug problem. Priority was placed on programs involving several disciplines, and decisionmakers recognized the need for and effectiveness of police programs which addressed and involved the total community in the criminal justice process. Sample programs included the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) Program and the Community Policing Program which integrated public education, law enforcement, and the community. In addition to DARE, Idaho funded two projects which operated under the acronym of PAYADA (Parents and Youth Against Drug Abuse). Idaho sponsored 18 multijurisdictional task forces which enabled law enforcement agencies to draw on multiregional resources to coordinate drug law enforcement activities related to investigating, arresting, and prosecuting drug offenders. These task forces covered over 78,327 square miles and a population of 1.2 million local residents. In addition, financial investigation programs targeted money laundering and drug forfeiture. Idaho also focused on information sharing, assistance to county prosecutors, training for both prosecutors and law enforcement personnel, drug law enforcement needs, drug abuse counseling, forensic analysis, youth at risk of drug abuse, community policing, criminal history records improvement, and drug prevention.
