Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $14,911)

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 Leavenworth Police Department will utilize its Fiscal Year 2008 JAG funds to purchase an Airsoft Training System valued at $4,800.00, which is designed for realistic active shooter training without live weapons. The remaining allocation will be used to purchase other law enforcement equipment after an agreement with the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office.
