Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $52,221)

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 Warner Robins, serving as the fiscal agent for this award, will share the Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds with one disparate jurisdiction within Houston County. In a disparate situation, the units of local government must apply for an award with a single joint application. Each jurisdiction's allocation will be used for activities and projects that will provide meaningful and measurable outcomes consistent with the goals of the JAG program, including personnel and law enforcement initiatives.

The Warner Robins Police Department (WRPD) proposes to use the funds to purchase a force judgment simulator to use during training. A force judgment simulator will enable officers to train with weapons in very realistic Use of Force scenarios and improve the techniques of officers with lethal and less than lethal weapons.

The Houston County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) proposes to use the funds to purchase electronic equipment to upgrade the Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs). The MDTs are used daily by deputies to complete reports in the field. The capability to use an up-to-date MDT improves the efficiency of a deputy in their daily report writing. Their Law Enforcement Equipment Project goal is to improve and enhance the local law enforcement programs by supplementing the ability of the WRPD and the HCSO to purchase law enforcement equipment and supplies.
