Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $17,491)

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 Dalton proposes to use their Fiscal Year 2010 JAG grant funds to purchase and modify their current communication system for the Dalton Police Department (DPD). The purchase of the communication system equipment will allow them to meet the FCC 2013 narrow banding mandate. The DPD will also purchase mobile radios, repeaters and reprogrammed current radios. Additionally, the system will enable the DPD to maintain radio interoperability with other public safety agencies within the surrounding area. Their goals are to provide effective radio inter-operability to comply with the FCC 2013 narrow band mandate and replace all mobile radios, repeaters, and portable radios that are not capable of being in compliance with FCC narrow banded mandate.
