Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $14,365)

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 Henderson will use the JAG funds to enhance existing law enforcement efforts by purchasing two mobile data terminal systems for the police department. The project goal is to utilize patrol in a round the clock rotation, providing an increase in service for both officers and citizens 24 hours per day.
