The City of McAllen was invited to apply by the Department of Justice to the Justice Assistance (BJA) Grant. The McAllen Police Department seeks to continue, improve, and/or become innovative in its methodology and implementation of law enforcement techniques. Support for this goal is noted in the City of McAllen's Strategic Plan which states Strategy 4.2: "Promote and enhance safety in the community". The proposed project under this grant funding opportunity supports the "Project Grey Key" initiative that aims to advance the efforts to meet McAllen's Strategy 4.2. This project seeks to purchase high-end, cutting-edge equipment and software for the McAllen Police Department; specifically, for the Forensic Examiners in the division. The service area will include the city of McAllen, as well as neighboring cities in the area and county. Intended beneficiaries from this project will include citizens of the Rio Grande Valley.
