Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $12,686)

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 of Delaware County and the city of Delaware will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $12,686 to purchase two mobile video systems and related supplies for the Delaware Police Department's patrol vehicles. The video systems will be used to capture evidence that can be used in the prosecution of court cases, forensic reconstruction, and can be used as an aid in agency liability cases. In addition, the proposed systems are user friendly and increase protection for officers and members of the community.
