Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $52,003)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Leavenworth County and the city of Leavenworth will use their 2009 JAG award to support the needs of local law enforcement agencies in the areas of information systems, to improve the criminal justice system, and to obtain a canine unit. The Leavenworth Police Department will use its share of the funds ($41,602) to install a new records management system and a new computer-aided dispatch system. Both systems will have the ability to integrate with mobile data software. The Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office will use its funds ($10,401) to obtain a police canine to assist with patrol/enforcement and narcotics searches.
