Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $15,800)

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 Klamath Falls will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG funds to support technological advances for the Klamath Falls Police Department. Funds will be used to purchase two Power Edge Smart Servers, a dual embedded Broadcom network adapter, remote management CD/DVD/RW drive, CISCO firewall software, and a three-year IT ProSupport contract. JAG funds will allow the police department to perform computer duties at a much faster pace and utilize new features to optimize newly available technologies, as well as improve domain control, authenticate users, and provide a backup system to guard against loss of information.
