Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $11,856)

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 Bloomfield, through the police department, will use 2010 JAG funding to purchase three Stalker Radar Units with the necessary accessories and support equipment. These units will replace outdated and nonfunctioning systems in the Department's traffic division. The police department will also purchase two HDTV systems. These systems will be used during internal training classes. The final purchase will be 13 digital cameras that will be used to document evidence.
