Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $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).

Grant funds will be used to purchase bulletproof vests for the Warrant Service Team, serving high-risk warrants in dangerous and often life-threatening situations. The vests will vary from standard patrol vests as they are enhanced with protective ballistic additions geared towards tactical units and safety.
