Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $13,811)

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 Gallatin will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $13,811 to support Gang and Undercover Narcotics Surveillance (G.U.N.S). The Gallatin Police Department will purchase surveillance equipment to monitor increased gang and narcotic activity within the city limits. Current equipment is cumbersome and outdated. The new equipment will provide for better efficiency while obtaining accurate and timely information to ensure officers are made aware of and are informed of activities and community conditions on patrol beats.
