Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $16,416)

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).

This grant will be used to support technology upgrades within the Plant City Policy Department (PCPD). Specifically, funds will be used to purchase tablets and related accessories to enhance communication efficiency. PCPD will also use funds to upgrade audio/video recording equipment in the department's interview rooms and purchase printers, scanners, and video cameras to be used for training and community policing purposes. The project goals are to increase essential law enforcement services throughout the City through these necessary upgrades.
