Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $21,434)

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 city of Appleton, serving as the fiscal agent for the grant, will share the JAG funds with Outagamie County. The city will use their share of the grant funds to purchase specialized law enforcement equipment that will be used by the police school liaison officers, supervisors, and patrol officers. The equipment will assist the officers in fighting crime and solving problems in the City of Appleton. The county will use their share of the JAG funds to replace and upgrade recording equipment in interview rooms and wearable audio/visual recording devices for patrol officers conducting routine interviews.
