Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $22,274)

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 Riviera Beach Police Department will utilize their Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 JAG funds to partner with Motorola Corporation to provide a MotoMesh (MESH) Pilot System using Motorola's years of working with Riviera Beach to engineer a new broadband wireless data communication system within the Riviera Beach Police Department's defined areas. This will require the purchase of MESH-enabled video cameras, an intelligent access point, and a monitor.
