Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $14,828)

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 Casselberry will use the 2009 local JAG funds to purchase two portable network surveillance cameras for the city police department. The surveillance equipment will be used to provide perimeter surveillance during special events and during tactical situations. The goal is to provide the police department with the necessary equipment to monitor and identified 'hot spots' thereby reducing or eliminating the need for a police officer to be assigned to an area and making the city safer place by reducing crime in the community.
