Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $10,812)

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 support law enforcement initiatives. Specifically, grant funds will allow the Chamblee Police Department to purchase a covert camera system which can be positioned and moved about this neighborhood. This will allow 24/7 monitoring by law enforcement even when officers are not actually in the area. The goals of this program are to provide remote monitoring and surveillance of crime and drug ridden neighborhoods and to gather intelligence without officers having to be present.
