Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $14,813)

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 Bristol will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $14,813 to purchase a T3Motion personal vehicle and equipment for Project Lifesaver for the Bristol Police Department. The T3Motion vehicle is a three-wheeled, electrically powered personal vehicle equipped with lights and siren. The T3 is very maneuverable, and provides a quick, efficient, and safe method of transportation for officers operating in an environment filled with pedestrians. The department also participates in Project LifeSaver where new transmitters would be more efficient, smaller, and less obtrusive. The transmitters will enable the department to provide better service, enabling officer's to quickly locate clients and prevent injury.
