Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $18,869)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local government, 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 Tigard will use its Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to support technological advances for the Tigard Police Department. Funds will be used to upgrade and replace nine desktop computers in the officer report writing room used primarily to complete reports of incidents and activities that occur during the shift. The city's goal is to add additional memory and hard drive capacity upgrades to all officers' computers so that they can use new software programs ranging from word processing, spreadsheets, dispatch, records management, property and evidence, finance, purchasing, and other web-based applications.
