Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $31,819)

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 disparate jurisdictions of Burlington City and Des Moines County will use their JAG award to support an upgrade of equipment for the Des Moines County Communications Center. Burlington City, acting as the fiscal agent, will utilize the entire JAG funding to upgrade/replace the current communications radios, phone system, radio/phone recording systems, and console replacement at the Communications Center.
