Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $14,908)

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 Hazelwood will use their 2009 local JAG award to purchase E-SPONDER Express software for the police department. The Hazelwood Police Department will use this software to streamline the paperwork and reporting associated with various incidents. The E-SPONDER software can also be used to track resources and personnel in real time, contributing to accountability and situational awareness. The department will also have the ability to eliminate paper forms and impractical binders through the use of electronic incident action plans.
