Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $10,890)

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 Ormond Beach will use the JAG funds to purchase equipment for the Ormond Beach Police Department. The purchase includes hardware, a PDA-type reader including software, and a thermal printer connected by a wireless device. This equipment will allow motorcycle units to capture information from a driver's license bar code or magnetic strip for the creation of printed citations. With this equipment the police department is looking to streamline the process and create a safer procedure for the issuance of traffic citations or warnings by traffic officers.
