Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $90,000)

The Congressionally Selected Awards Program, authorized by the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (Pub. L. 111-8), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects selected by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-8, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 09 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY09 Omnibus Appropriations Act.

Oldham County Sheriff's Office will use Fiscal Year 2009 Congressionally Selected Awards funds to enhance its law enforcement equipment in order to provide officer safety, citizen safety, and the delivery of professional law enforcement services. In order to achieve this goal the sheriff's office will purchase the following equipment: hand held radar units, mobile data computers, tactical uniforms, uniform jackets, sets of tactical duty gear, tasers, one police cruiser, one 4 wheel drive police vehicle, and additional emergency equipment to be installed in their patrol vehicles.
