Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $14,948)

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 Marietta Police Department will use its Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 JAG award to enhance the Department's ability to digitally record evidence for prosecution. The long-term goal of the department is to become 100 percent digital and paper free. The FY 2008 JAG funds will be used to purchase 3 L3 Mobile Vision in-car video systems to be used on two existing motorcycles that the department currently has in the fleet. These motorcycles do not currently have video capabilities. Furthermore, funds will be used for new L3 Mobile Vision in-car video systems designed for motor units.
