Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $10,282)

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 Cache County and Logan City will share this JAG award in the amount of $10,282 toward an interoperable data communication system. The city of Logan, serving as the fiscal agent, will use the entire award toward a joint law enforcement program that will benefit both the city of Logan and Cache County. Specific purchases will include two fiber optic channel switches and other fiber optic technology related equipment. The project goal is to enhance the data sharing and interoperability of the Logan City Police Department, Cache County Sheriff's Office and the Logan 911 Communication Center.
