Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $11,164)

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 Quincy will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award to purchase two laptops and the necessary accessories to mount and install them in Patrol vehicles. The upgraded systems will ensure more patrolling of the community and quicker access to pertinent law enforcement data. The new equipment will increase officer safety, increase the ability to patrol more efficiently, and provide accurate up to date information in a timely matter. The Quincy Police Department will also purchase two LCD televisions to monitor weather during storms/emergencies, news, and training videos.
