Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $115,197)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Clark County and the city of Vancouver will use their JAG grant to support the needs of local law enforcement agencies through equipment and technology improvements. Clark County, serving as the fiscal agent, will use their share of the JAG award to purchase an additional server with supporting software, a digital investigations system upgrade, a 10-printer for sex offender registration, and training range munitions. The city of Vancouver will use their JAG award to purchase equipment, supplies, and technology improvements to improve the operational efficiency of the criminal justice system and other related law enforcement functions.
