Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $47,285)
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 Modesto will use the JAG funds to purchase 96 weapons system packages for the Modesto Police Department. Funding will enable the department to replace the current weapons systems with an up-to-date weapons system. The equipment will improve weapon performance, reliability, and indirectly enhance the safety of police officers and community residents.
