Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $31,804)

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 Chico Police Department, serving as the fiscal agent for the FY 2014 JAG award, will utilize its share of funds to purchase an electronic gate controller (with Radio Frequency Identification Reader), including a new and replacement high-security fencing to enhance the security around the police facility.

The Oroville Police Department intends to utilize its portion of funds to purchase a Cellebrite Phone Extraction Tool (software and hardware) to download information from cell phones. The use of cell phones and smart phones is becoming the normal method of communication and information retention, which has created the need to access this information to thoroughly investigate cases.
