Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $16,910)

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 towards equipment improvements for law enforcement. Funds will allow the recipient to improve the operational response of the Jacksonville Police Department Tactical Team through the purchase of specialized equipment. Night vision goggles and helmets funded through this award will improve officer safety during Tactical Team responses, especially those addressing violence and violent crimes.
