Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $18,609)

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 Milford will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $18,609 to secure equipment for the Wildemere Beach Neighborhood Video Monitoring and Security System. The Milford Police Department will use funds to purchase components (cameras, transformers, camera housings, cables, etc.) for a wireless video security system in a mixed residential and commercial neighborhood that has been experiencing ongoing quality of life issues. This security system will enhance the department's ability to effectively react to, deter, and prevent crime in the area.
