Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $11,398)

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 Ormond Beach, through the police department, will use the FY 2010 JAG award to support training and to purchase equipment. Specifically, grant funds will be used to implement a Reality-Based Training (RBT), which is a collection of concepts, skills and techniques based on conflict situations that a police officer may encounter in his or her environment, through the purchase of officer training gear. In addition, funds will be used to purchase an electronic citation device to improve traffic citation procedures. The goals of this project are to improve officer safety through enhanced training opportunities and to create safer procedures for the issuance of traffic citations or warnings by traffic officers.
