Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $11,360)

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 Hualapai Tribe will use the local JAG funds to support technological advances for the Hualapai Tribe Police Department. The tribe's goal is to have a patrol fleet capable of wirelessly connecting with their CAD and RMS server located at the police station. JAG funds will be used to purchase and install two in-car DVD digital recording systems and replace two aging VHS in-car recording systems with DVD systems. This technology will improve officer safety as well as enhance the safe delivery of police services to the Hualapai people and reservation communities.
