Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $36,143)

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 Manassas City will fund equipment and supplies for the Manassas Police Department. They will purchase a server for the Electronic Crimes Unit. The new server will store 16 terabytes of criminal justice information in a secure fashion enabling the digital evidence to be used in criminal prosecutions. The Manassas Police Department will also purchase equipment necessary for a reality based defensive tactics training program and an indoor/outdoor core strength training facility to reduce work related injuries and increase safety. The JAG funds will enhance the Manassas City's law enforcement personnel in the areas of technology improvement and physical conditioning.
