Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $30,796)

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 grantee will utilize this Fiscal Year 2012 JAG award to procure a Simunition Training System and an Automatic Tag Reader. The Simunition Training System will establish the most realistic of police training environments by placing actual duty weapons, modified to shoot a dye filled projectile, in the hands of an officer within a controlled training environment. The Automatic Tag Reader will be attached to a patrol vehicle and recognize and read license plates by means of a camera or multiple cameras. The reader compares the information it has obtained against a state and or national data base. If law enforcement or a state's department of motor vehicles has flagged that license tag, the information is then presented to the officer in real time and immediate enforcement action can be taken.
