Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $11,291)

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 this JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment. Specific purchases will include body cameras, flash drives and DVDs. The project goal is to increase the ability to reproduce accurate accounts of officer and investigator encounters. The acquisition of body cameras will fulfill this need by providing an interactive method by which encounters can be viewed in real time. NCA/NCF
