Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $18,116)

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 the grant to purchase Tasers, software access licenses for the police department records management system and rifles. The disparate Cleveland County will use grant funds to purchase dynamic prisoner extraction equipment, while the Moore Police Department will purchase notebook computers for use by patrol officers in their vehicles. Collectively, the equipment purchases will serve to reduce area crime and violence, as well as provide for officer and citizen safety.
