Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $13,148)

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 disparate jurisdiction will utilize JAG award to support law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to purchase laptops, tablets, software, and a multi-media logging computer software system. The project goals are to allow officers in the field to access pertinent and time sensitive information from law enforcement databases immediately from their cruiser laptops/tablets; and record and archive audio communications to assist with the investigation and prosecution of criminal cases, where witness accounts are recorded and preserved via a multi-media recording device.
