Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $11,935)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states, tribes, and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own local needs and conditions. Grant funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The City of Ann Arbor will use their Fiscal Year 2008 Justice Assistance Grant award in the amount of $11,935 for law enforcement purposes. The police department will purchase 11 replacement shotguns and three bicycles for patrol officers. The shotguns are old and becoming non-functional, and the bicycles require extensive, costly repairs. This equipment will increase the safety of officers and citizens and improve service to the community.
