Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $10,235)

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 retrofit a mobile command post. The funding will allow for a climate controlled work environment, adequate space to store crime scene equipment, supplies, paperwork, and to store evidence maintaining the chain of custody. The properly equipped mobile command post/crime scene unit allows staff and criminal investigators to respond to the needs of the public and to provide more efficient services. NCA/NCF
