Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $15,368)

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 will use the grant funds to purchase the hardware needed to implement an electronic ticket program that is able to be integrated into a records management system (RMS). By installing a seamless, wireless, integrated ticket system, the City can eliminate many of the repetitive tasks associated with the manual entry of citation data, decrease the potential for error, and ensure that information retrieved can be trusted and used as the basis for enforcement, incarceration and timely apprehension of offenders.
