Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $15,846)

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 Marysville will use the 2009 local JAG award to purchase laptop computer mounts and emergency vehicle equipment (in-car radio equipment and emergency lighting) for their police department's operations division. Additionally, the city will purchase electronic forensic examination hardware for the police department's detective bureau. The grant funds will supplement existing funds for program activities and will not supplant or replace nonfederal funds that have been appropriated for the same purpose.
