Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $13,528)

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 disparate jurisdictions of Montgomery county and city of Coffeyville, being the fiscal agent, will use their FY 2010 JAG award in the amount of $13,528 to support enhanced communication purchases. The city of Coffeyville will procure an upgraded E911 Voice Recording System to allow the Coffeyville Police Department to continue to provide timely, efficient and technologically advanced services not only to the citizens, but also other emergency service providers and court officials. The ability to efficiently store and retrieve this data is critical to the successful prosecution of criminal cases. Montgomery County (County) will purchase AED's as a first line of defense against death from sudden cardiac events at the Judicial Center and Department of Corrections. The county will also provide an AED in the sheriff's office supervisor vehicle to increase the safety for all residents of Montgomery County. Additionally, the county will use funds to comply with FCC regulations on narrow banding of the Public Safety spectrum of frequencies for law enforcement agencies.
