Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $180,000)

The Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects recommended by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-117, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 2010 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY2010 Department of Justice Appropriations Act.

The Roland Police Department (RPD) will replace old obsolete computer modems and monitors while adding digital cameras to be used for evidence collection on major crimes. RPD will also purchase two HDTVs to hook to a modem for officer training sessions. This equipment is essential in allowing RPD to gather and store information about crimes and suspects as it will allow us to access state records and statistics of crime and crime prevention. RPD will install new telephones in each office in the police complex and these telephones will have the technology of recording incoming and outgoing phone calls, and will link each office with a transfer system and paging system. The purchase of equipment will improve law enforcement services in the Town of Roland, Oklahoma.
