Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $42,034)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Discretionary Grants Program (Byrne Discretionary Program) helps local communities improve the capacity of local justice systems and provides for national support efforts. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 08 Congressional Budget. Funds should be used for purposes recommended by Congress.

The city of Rancho Santa Margarita will use the grant funds to purchase mobile data computers and patrol video systems for 13 police patrol and parking control vehicles. Installation of the new computers and video systems will help city police to respond more efficiently to increasing calls for service and aid in preventing crime in the city.
