Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $48,002)

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 city of Pensacola, through the police department, will use the JAG award towards law enforcement initiatives. Specifically, funds will be used for equipment purchases. The Pensacola Police Department will upgrade an outdated VHS video recording system by purchasing and installing eight in-car digital systems along with four wireless microphones, allowing for direct conversion to DVD, longer shelf life, and extended memory for recording.
