Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $42,390)

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 support law enforcement technology initiatives. Specifically, funds will be used to purchase body cameras with the necessary clips that will attach to the upper body uniform; docking stations that will charge and upload videos to an evidence server; additional video storage costs per camera and a one-time premium service cost for set up and training for equipment and uploading and reviewing videos. This new technology will capture valuable information that will allow the Palm Bay Police Department to function more efficiently in the evolving law enforcement environment. NCA/NCF
