Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $13,702)

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 Redmond will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award for law enforcement equipment and training. Specifically, the JAG funds will be used to purchase a rack server to fit existing inventory for storage, software and licenses for data management, a computer-based digital recording system for interview and interrogations, and training for staff to attend the National Institute of Justice Introduction to Crime Mapping and Analysis Using course. These purchases will enhance the police department's ability to provide professional and efficient services to its citizens.
