Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $20,835)

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 Riley County Police Department will use the FY 13 Local JAG award to purchase an on-line crime reporting tool that will reduce patrol officer involvement in the crime reporting process, as well as patrol rifles for the police department. The project goals are to increase essential law enforcement services. NCA/NCF
