Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $16,541)

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 Redding and Shasta County will share the JAG award in the amount of $16,541. The City of Redding Police Department will use the entire award amount to fund the technology supervisor's salary. The technology supervisor oversees the Integrated Public Safety System. The primary goal of the system is to make data available on a daily basis and in emergency situations to officers in the field. The Integrated Public Safety System provides law enforcement automation services to approximately 14 agencies, including the Shasta County Sheriff's Office.
