Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $11,394)

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 Grafton County and the city of Lebanon will use their fiscal year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $11,394 towards a police data sharing initiative. The city of Lebanon, serving as the fiscal agent, will use the entire award to purchase three computer software packages and two fiber converters. The Hanover and Enfield Police Departments, both municipal police departments who share geographic borders with Lebanon, will also receive a direct benefit from this project. These upgrades will allow all mentioned departments to interconnect intelligence data using the same records management software.
