Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $13,309)

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 Chamblee proposes to use their Fiscal Year 2010 JAG grant funds to upgrade the security system in its Public Safety building. The building houses the police department, a 911 center, and a 26 bed detention center. The expansion of the security system would allow for more coverage of the facility including the evidence room, allow for twice the number of cameras to be installed and monitored. The goal of the project is to increase the number of cameras throughout the interior and exterior of the public safety building as well as monitor parked vehicles.
