Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $36,560)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Cleveland County and the cities of Norman and Moore will utilize the JAG award in the amount of $36,560 towards law enforcement initiatives. The city of Norman, serving as the fiscal agent, will use $21,570 to train a polygrapher for the Norman Police Department and to purchase equipment. A patrol trailer and barricades will be purchased in order to eliminate the long delays encountered by the Norman Police Department when they must rely on other agencies to deploy traffic control equipment. The department will also purchase a portable video camera to replace the current, and frequently unreliable, equipment used to record evidence at major crime scenes. Crash data recovery software will be purchased by the Norman Police Department in order to recover data from systems installed in late model vehicles. The city of Moore, through the police department, will use $10,602 to purchase laptop connectivity software and a portable video camera for use in criminal investigations. Cleveland County will use $4,388 to purchase a prisoner extraction kit, which is necessary to safely extract unruly prisoners from cells.
