Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $34,942)

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 program 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 plans to purchase special covert surveillance equipment to use in surveillance and covert operations. The purchase of two-way radios will allow for expanded multi-agency, covert-operations and the instantaneous ability of supervisors and command staff to monitor criminal activity and criminal incidents.
