Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $17,909)

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 Northglenn will use the local 2009 JAG funds for the Northglenn Police Department to update its computer systems for Internal Affairs complaints tracking. The department will also use funds to update an antiquated system for booking and storing evidence and purchase window guards on patrol vehicles to keep violent arrestees from harming themselves and causing further property damage to the vehicle fleet. Any remaining funds will be allocated to the North Metro Drug Task Force for overtime or equipment needs.
