Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $10,616)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local governments, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and 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, including 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 and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The city of Mount Dora will use the JAG funds to help fund the purchase of a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria police cruiser for the Mount Dora Police Department. The fully equipped law enforcement sedan is a fundamental tool for delivering law enforcement services and will see active duty immediately upon purchase. Without safe, reliable, and effective transportation, officers cannot perform their jobs effectively and put both themselves and the public within harms reach.
