Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $16,355)

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 Waukesha and Waukesha County have been identified as disparate and will share this Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award. The city of Waukesha, serving as the fiscal agent, will allocate its portion of this award to fund training, communications, surveillance, information technology software, drug enforcement, and crime prevention equipment. The goal is to enhance the police department's ability to predict crime through the use of technology.
The county of Waukesha will use its share of this award to purchase the law enforcement equipment and supplies for the Sheriff's Department, including emergency responder equipment/supplies, information technology software, and investigative support equipment.
