Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $27,904)
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 funds to enhance the handling and storage of department digital evidence and information, which includes but is not limited to in-car video, crime scene photos, audio recordings and interview room recording management. Funds will also be used to enhance the security surveillance of the county parking ramp through the purchase and installation of security cameras and digital video recording equipment. NCA/NCF
