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).

Lake Havasu City will use the 2009 JAG funds to deploy in-car-video in the police patrol and specialty vehicles. The use of in-car-video has a long list of benefits for the safety of the officers and the community. The grant will provide a complete Hud-Data911 M6 Mobile Data System that includes two mobile cameras, a mobile computer with a touch screen, and the ability to send and receive streaming video. The system can also perform license plate reader functions. The goals associated with this project will be to take advantage of the wireless network system that will have the capability of sending and receiving live streaming video to and from the vehicle.
