Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $13,575)

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 funds to purchase ballistic helmets and portable radios for the city police department. Each officer will be provided with a helmet to be stored in patrol vehicles to make them readily available for added protection. Portable radios will be assigned to each officer to allow better interoperability and communication through multiple frequencies. NCA/NCF
