Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $13,615)

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 the city of Havre and Hill County will share this JAG award in the amount of $13,615 to purchase a firearms training simulator that is a computerized interactive scenario-based system. The simulator will be used to routinely train and enhance the law enforcement officer's skills in the proper use of firearms and use of deadly force; provide training to all law enforcement agencies throughout north-central Montana; maintain useful and accurate training records for each officer; and reduce the liability or occurrence of inappropriate use of deadly force. The city of Havre will serve as the fiscal agent.
