Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $665,464)

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 city of Tulsa and Tulsa County will use their JAG award in the amount of $665,464 to hire four civilian crime analysts and to purchase six in-car computers for the Tulsa County Sheriff's Department. The Tulsa Police Department will hire the crime analysts for a period of three years, in order to meet the demands of mission-critical crime analysis and to specifically support the department's COMPSTAT initiative. Sworn police officers will not be remanded from field patrol to perform the duties of the crime analysts, thus they will have greater ability to provide enhanced service directly to Tulsa citizens. The Tulsa County Sheriff's Department will purchase an in-car computer for each deputy, which will improve communication between patrol deputies and increase the time allocated for patrols.
