Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $11,523)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Clallam County and the city of Port Angeles will share this fiscal year 2010 JAG funding in the amount of $11,523 to purchase a Laser Shot Virtual Firearms Simulator that will be incorporated into the firearms lethal force training for all officers. The simulator can be used for qualification practice and development. It is also adaptable to a wide variety of firearms using laser technology instead of ammunition. This simulator will prove valuable to enhance officer training needs within the county.
