Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $43,684)

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 cities of Norman and Moore, and Cleveland County are disparate jurisdictions. Cleveland Couty will not receive any of the funding. The cities of Norman and Moore will utilize the JAG award in the amount of $43,684 to purchase law enforcement equipment. The city of Norman serving as the fiscal agent, will will utilize $29,170 to purchase tasers, global records management system licenses, and rifles. The city of Moore will utilize $14,514 to purchase a portable pole camera, GPS tracking, software, criminal investigation cameras, and evidence collection equipment. The goals of this project are to ensure that police officers taking calls for service are equipped with the necessary tools to perform the jobs and deliver professional police services to the public.
