Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $13,556)

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 Findlay Police Department and the Hancock County Sheriff's Office will use their Fiscal Year 2009 Local JAG award ($13,556) to purchase equipment and hire personnel. The Findlay Police Department, serving as the fiscal agent, will purchase four radios and supplement the cost of one radio. The radios will improve communications among the Findlay's police officers, dispatch, and other emergency response providers. The grant project will be administered by the Hancock Regional Planning Commission; thus, a salary and fringe benefit costs will be used for project personnel. The Hancock County Sheriff's Office has declined to use any of the allotted funds.
