Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $480,499)

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 City of Oklahoma, City of Del City, City of Midwest and the County of Oklahoma, disparate jurisdiction, will use FY 2013 JAG funds to purchase equipment for the Oklahoma City Police Department, the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office, the Del City Police Department, and the Midwest City Police Department. In addition, the Oklahoma City Police Department will use grant funds for overtime wages in the fingerprint unit and to hire a Forensic Computer Examiner. Collectively, these initiatives will serve to reduce area crime and violence and improve the criminal justice system.
