Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $14,017)

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).

This JAG award will be used to purchase law enforcement equipment. Funds will be used to purchase protective helmets, less than lethal devices, computer hardware for data sharing, officer safety/tactical equipment, and support system improvements. The goals of this project are to enhance officer safety and to begin targeting specific neighborhoods and schools to reduce crime. NCA/NCF
