Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $10,037)

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 Okmulgee and Okmulgee County will jointly use the Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $10,037 to obtain external radio microphones equipped with digital video cameras which will be worn by uniformed police officers. The equipment allows the officer to document public contacts. The city of Okmulgee will be the fiscal agent of the grant. The goal is to provide video technology and equipment to as many officers as possible.
