Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $21,771)

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 Liberal and Seward County will share the JAG award. The city, serving as the fiscal agent, will use their share of the grant to purchase and implement the DEMM (Digital Eyewitness Media Manager) System for the police department. The DEMM System is an all inclusive hardware and software package that provides a user-friendly means to manage digital video files that are downloaded from the in-car video systems installed in the city police cars. The county will use their share of the grant funds to purchase law enforcement equipment.
