Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $10,839)

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 Doraville will use the 2009 JAG funds to purchase additional laptops for patrol officers. The Doraville Police Department will improve its communications capacity by providing officers with mobile computers in patrol vehicles. This equipment will allow the officers to communicate with operators as emergency calls are dispatched, create police reports which are accessible through a wireless system, and conduct criminal information checks on persons and vehicles without the assistance of a third party operator.
