Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $20,294)

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 Warren and county of Warren agree that city of Warren will utilize $20,294 of Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to purchase in-car computers and secure radios for their patrol vehicles. Additional computer upgrades will allow patrol officers on the road to have a greater officer presence, gather intelligence, and establish a community outreach program with county law enforcement in joint operations such as DUI checkpoints, traffic safety programs, and other routine crime prevention programs.
