Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $11,558)

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 to upgrade computer equipment and outfit a tactical unit. Obsolete computer stations and servers will be replaced with newer models that will provide a more efficient working environment and support records management. Officers will be provided protective gear for use in tactical situations, providing increased officer safety in violent situations. NCA/NCF
