Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $10,604)

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 Troy will use the JAG award to provide security enhancements to its prisoner detention center. The city, like the surrounding jurisdictions, has and is experiencing very difficult economic times. The city of Troy has been working with other jurisdictions on the consolidation of jail/detention services to reduce costs. In 2008, the city assumed responsibility for dispatching and prisoner detention for the city of Clawson and now has agreements with the cities of Madison Heights and Royal Oak to provide these services for them. With the consolidation of jail/detention facilities, the city needs to make security improvements to the prisoner detention center for the safety of employees and prisoners. This project will provide full security camera coverage in the lockup facility and provide a safer environment for all.
