Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $11,344)
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 the county of Herkimer and the village of Herkimer will apply fiscal year 2009 JAG funding towards separate initiatives aimed at enhancing communications and officer safety. Specifically, the village police department will purchase Tasers and associated accessories to provide officers a less-than-lethal option when faced with combative subjects. A color printer will also be purchased. The county will use its share to purchase portable radios for its sheriff's department. For administrative purposes, the village will serve as the fiscal agent for this award.
