Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $37,599)

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 Cape Coral, through the police department, will purchase law enforcement equipment. Specific purchases will include digital encrypted radios and shoulder microphones for officers. The goal of the project is to successfully transition the county's public safety communications to a digital encrypted, P25 compliant system that is compatible with State and Federal communication system.
