Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $17,370)

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 law enforcement equipment. Specific purchases will include desk radios and a computer workstation. The goals of this project are to replace obsolete desk ultra high frequency (UHF) radios, purchase a UHF radio for the mobile command post, and replace one computer workstation that is beyond its lifespan. The change from very high frequency (VHF) to UHF radios will enhance communications by continuing to improve communications within the City of Azusa and between neighboring agencies. The purchase of the computer workstation will enable police department staff to more efficiently complete work.
