Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $49,715)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Boulder County and the city of Boulder will use their FY 09 JAG award for law enforcement equipment. The city of Boulder, serving as the fiscal agent, will use their share of the funds to purchase tasers, air cartridges, power magazines, digital video cameras, duplexer filters, and cameras. Boulder County will use their share of the funds to purchase exterior vest covers. The purchase of this equipment will help the law enforcement agencies enhance their effectiveness and efficiency of law enforcement programs and reduce violence, while ensuring the safety of officers.
