Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $14,539)

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 city of Adrian and Lenawee County will use their FY 2009 JAG funds to purchase equipment. However, Lenawee County has declined a share of the FY 2009 JAG award. The city of Adrian Police Department, serving as the fiscal agent, will purchase equipment to be used by the agency to facilitate officer safety and case management. The grant will be used to purchase in car video necessary for police vehicles that currently have no video equipment. With the installation of the cameras, the officers will have actual recording of events and conversations. This will document events clearly and also aid in the prosecution of crimes. The ability to review the recording of events will also aid in training of the officers in certain situations. The city of Adrian Police Department's goal is to provide efficient, effective, and proactive enforcement of all laws in the city of Adrian.
