Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $13,083)

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 supplement current ballistic vests with the purchase of rifle plates and protective helmets. This project will allow officers to be properly equipped to rapidly engage in real world threats and provide protection from rifle munitions in a plate carrier that can immediately be thrown over existing uniforms or plain clothes.
