Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $10,102)

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 Goose Creek will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award to enhance their law enforcement technology capabilities. The Goose Creek Police Department will purchase two laptop computers for placement in patrol vehicles. These laptop computers will interface with existing communications systems and will increase the number of computers the department can put on the road and allow for increased interdepartmental operations during times of emergency. The city's goal is to conduct law enforcement operations in a safe manner through the enhancement of technological equipment in the Patrol Division.
