Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $14,364)

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 Cabot will use JAG funds to purchase law enforcement equipment for the Cabot Police Department. Specific purchases include tasers, air cartridges, and ammunition rounds. The project goals are to increase the safety of officers, decrease the amount of crime, reduce the necessity for legal force, increase the effectiveness to incapacitate a fleeing criminal, and increase the range in which incapacitation can be achieved.
