Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $106,620)

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 Chandler will use the JAG funds to purchase a Latent Processing Platform System which includes an Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) workstation and equipment to photograph chemically enhanced latent prints for the Chandler Police Department. The project goals are to reduce investigative time and increase overall effectiveness of the city police department.
