Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $35,416)
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 Gila River Pima-Maricopa Tribe will use JAG funds to purchase law enforcement equipment for the Gila River Police Department. Specifically, funds will purchase an Electronic Uniform Complaint System (E-Ticket). The project goals are to replace the current time-consuming and paper-intensive system; increase the safety of the local roads and state routes within the community; improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the officers; and, improve record-keeping and modernization of policing procedures.
