Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $68,128)

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 initiatives. Specifically, funds will be used to purchase a mobile surveillance camera system for the police department to use during special events, as well as address crime trends throughout the city. The primary goal of this project is to provide the highest quality video coverage and ensure deployment flexibility to address and mitigate issues citywide, such as crowd control, proactive surveillance details and potential terrorist activity.
