Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $12,312)

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 and county of Napa will use the JAG award to upgrade and enhance the Computer Aided Dispatch System (CAD) and County Records Management System (RMS) for the Napa Police Department and Napa County Sheriff's Department. Previous JAG awards, along with a variety of other funding sources, helped to start this project, and since the initial implementation, additional software upgrades have become necessary. Both the city and county have agreed to split the $12,312 in FY 2008 with all funds going towards the joint CAD/RMS system enhancement project.
