Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $10,584)

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 of the town of Culpeper and Culpeper County will use their JAG grant funds in the amount of $10,584 to purchase fitness equipment for the health and fitness room at the new police headquarters for the Culpeper Police Department. The Culpeper Police Department requires all sworn officers to participate in the nationally recognized LawFit® program. In addition to semi-annual participation in LawFit® those who are in specialized positions i.e. Master Police Officer and CJSOT (SWAT) have added physical fitness standards that have to be met. Having a health and wellness room also allows the agency to conduct physical fitness testing on new candidates which is a requirement in the recruitment process. The town of Culpeper will serve as the fiscal agent.
