Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $12,861)

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 Pearland will use the JAG funds to purchase supplemental firearms training equipment and supplies for the Pearland Police Department. The department will purchase a Laser Shot LE-100 Law Enforcement Shooting Simulator System and associated accessories. These purchases will enable the department to conduct supplemental firearms training to improve the shooting skills and mechanics of law enforcement officers. The Laser Shot system will be used as supplemental training for the Combined Agency Response Team (CART), a multi-jurisdictional SWAT team made up of officers from League City, Alvin, Alvin Community College, and Pearland Police Departments.
