Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $13,177)

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 disparate jurisdictions of the city of Quincy and Norfolk County have entered into an agreement. Quincy will receive, in full, the Fiscal Year 2008 JAG funding award in the amount of $13,177. The Quincy Police Department will utilize $2,999 to purchase updated hardware for outdated computers, which directly impacts the productivity and efficiency of Department's personnel and programs. The remaining $10,178 will be used to purchase a new workstation for Quincy Police Department's emergency 911 communication area. The new workstation will give dispatchers the tools needed to effectively relay critical information to officers.
