Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $15,294)

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 Alpharetta will use the JAG grant to purchase and install security cameras for the Alpharetta Public Safety Headquarters project. The video cameras will be placed around the vicinity of three buildings, which house the headquarters office, evidence building, and jail. The video cameras will be equipped with internal hard drives with capabilities to record two months of data. These security enhancements will provide one additional layer of protection of their assets.
