Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $31,506)

The Leavenworth Police Department is requesting grant funds to purchase Body-worn cameras (BWCs) (Law Enforcement Equipment) for our first responding police officers. The current body-worn cameras have had increasing hardware issues, are obsolete, and need replacement. The BWCs aid in crime Prosecution, aid in enforcing Impaired Driving, and enhance Traffic Enforcement by recording relevant information and evidence from the officer’s position. The Leavenworth County Sheriff's Department intends to use funds from the 2023 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant to outfit officers with encrypted portable hand-held radios (Law Enforcement Equipment-Video/Audio). The hand-held radios aid in crime Prosecution, aid in apprehending Impaired Drivers, and enhance Traffic Enforcement by facilitating critical information exchange with other officers and the dispatch center.
