Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $86,187)

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 Yuma County and Yuma City will use their JAG award in the amount of $86,187 to purchase law enforcement equipment. The city of Yuma will serve as the fiscal agent for the grant. The Yuma County Sheriff's Office and the Yuma Police Department will use the full award amount of $86,187 to purchase software and hardware equipment for their joint Computer Aided Dispatch and Records Management System, and the Jail Management System. The project goal is to unify all agencies' systems in order to share information between them as needed.
