Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $19,429)

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 Lynnwood will use their local JAG award to purchase ten electronic ticketing systems for motorcycle officers. The benefits of implementing this equipment include improvements to police and public safety, improved data collection, reduction in paperwork, and an increase in field time for officers. NCA/NCF
