Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $17,164)

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 JAG award to support law enforcement initiatives. Junction City, serving as the fiscal agent, will use funds to purchase tactical equipment, an audio/video recording system for interrogation rooms, and an animal catcher air launch grappling system. Geary County will use their portion of grant funds to purchase laptop computers for patrol vehicles. The grantee project goals are to increase essential law enforcement services for the community.
