Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $16,494)

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 grantee will use funds to acquire necessary law enforcement equipment for the Lufkin Police Department. Specifically, the police department will purchase Auto Cite Citation devices and related items. These devices will allow officers in the field to complete citations and trespass warnings via electronic means. This information will be used to better plan strategies for traffic control in the future.
