Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $23,538)

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 grant recipient will use the JAG funds to begin a system-wide upgrade to an all digital wireless in-car camera system. This upgrade allows for clearer video images and provides enhanced audio quality when gathering evidence during DWI arrests. It will also increase police officer safety by capturing offender images and actions on camera.
