Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $16,691)

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).

Dechutes County Sheriff's Office will use their Fiscal Year 2012 JAG funds to purchase six radios for the Sheriff's Office radio communications system. This purchase is for six APX 6500 single band mobile radios for the Sheriff's Office 800 MHz radio communications system. The radios are crucial components to ensure interoperability among law enforcement and public safety agencies that provide public safety services in the Central Oregon region. NCA/NCF
