Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $18,237)

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 town of Jupiter will use the JAG award to purchase and upgrade law enforcement equipment. Specifically, funds will be used for license plate recognition hardware, software and installation. This equipment will be used in patrol vehicles or stationary apparatus by sworn police officers. The project goal is to increase the safety and security of the community.
