Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $20,180)

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 the city of Eau Claire and Eau Claire County will use their FY 2009 Local JAG award to implement a mugshot system and replace duty weapons. The city of Eau Claire, serving as the fiscal agent, will share the supplemental cost of the implementation of a digital mugshot system for the Eau Claire Police Deparment (ECPD) with the Eau Claire Sheriff's Office. The ECPD will also use the funds to replace officer duty weapons.
