Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $11,323)

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 purchase upgraded lighting that will be mounted on a mobile command center. By having proper lighting, citizens and officers will easily be able to identify a critical incident area or a community special event and either avoid or approach the area with caution. This project will also provide officers with adequate lighting to properly process any crime scene, lessening the likelihood of missing valuable evidence and jeopardizing a case.
