Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $12,148)

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 purchase security equipment. Specific purchases will include proxy card readers for the Altamonte Springs Police Department. The goals of this project are to enhance the building's security to maintain officer safety, as well as maintain the strict rules of criminal justice information systems (CJIS) by restricting who has access to areas in which these records are commonly utilized.
