Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $38,492)

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 Apopka will use its Fiscal Year 2009 Justice Assistance Grant to purchase essential law enforcement communications equipment to upgrade equipment that is obsolete and no longer serviceable by the manufacturer. The funds will be used to purchase six Motorola portable radios and a Motorola speaker with antenna. The purchase will support domestic technology companies and allow them to retain employees and support staff. The goal is to increase the effectiveness of law enforcement through advanced technology.
