Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $18,589)

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 Monterey, through the police department, will utilize its Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to continue with the implementation of the in-car video systems project. These in-car video systems will help the police department achieve its objectives of increased officer safety, greater accountability, improved evidentiary capabilities, increased use of valuable technology, enhanced training, better quality control, reduced citizens' complaints, and providing exemplary service to the community.
