Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $89,439)

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 comprised of Trumbull County and the cities of Warren and Niles will use the 2010 JAG award to purchase needed equipment and train personnel, which will further their mission of providing basic Law Enforcement to their communities. The city of Warren, serving as the fiscal agent, will use their share of the funds to install radio equipment in police vehicles, improve the building's security system, upgrade the video and audio equipment in four interview rooms, and purchase servers, computers and software. Trumbull County will use their funds to purchase and equip a new vehicle for the Sheriff's Department and the city of Niles will use funds to install an in-car video system and purchase a portable entry shield.
