Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $99,963)

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).

Lane County and the City of Eugene will use their funding in the amount of $99,963 for the Law Enforcement Equipment and Public Safety Analytical Support Project. The funds will be divided equally between the two agencies. A goal of the project is to purchase law enforcement equipment to enhance the efficiency and safety of officers, and the efficiency of records management. JAG funds will be used to purchase Audio/Video equipment to be installed in multiple locations in the Eugene Police Department training and conference rooms. Additionally, the funds will be used to enable the Lane County Sheriff's Office to purchase the necessary software and equipment to replace the current Records Management System. NCA/NCF
