Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $16,006)

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 City of Lancaster will utilize the FY 2011 JAG award for law enforcement technology upgrades. Funds will allow the Lancaster Police Department to purchase body armor and mobile data terminal docking stations for their newer vehicle fleet. The requested equipment will improve officer safety and enhance the police department's ability to perform duties and functions in a more efficient manner.
