Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $13,954)

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 and participating entities will use the JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment. Specific purchases will include a radar unit to enforce traffic laws and increase radar assignments. Funds will also be used to purchase video and surveillance cameras to serve as additional eyes on targeted areas and field sobriety testing that occurs in the inmate facility. The project goals are to enhance traffic safety, crime prevention and evidence in criminal cases. NCA/NCF
