Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $10,519)

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).

Oregon City will use this Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award to support technological advances for the Oregon City Police Department. The city's goal is to replace existing outdated equipment for patrol officers. Funds will be used to purchase licensing privileges from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, air cards for access to the Internet, and two mobile data computers.
