Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $160,583)

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 will use the JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment. Specific purchases will include license plate readers. The disparate jurisdiction will utilize the JAG award to support law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to purchase property room storage units and digital evidence upgrades for the Sheriff and District Attorney's offices. The goals of this project are to enhance law enforcement services to the citizens through new technology equipment and increase law enforcement capacity of the Sheriff and District Attorney's offices.
