Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $21,720)

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 Conway, through the Conway Police Department, will use the FY 2010 JAG funds in the amount of $21,270 to purchase a police cruiser. The acquisition of this police cruiser will be used to replace an older model within the fleet. The goal of this project is to enhance the department's ability to adequately provide law enforcement services.
