Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $13,129)

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 upgrades. Specifically, funds will be used to purchase a computer server to store and manage video acquired from body cameras. The project goals are to enhance the capability to store body camera video for a period of at least 120 days, allow for retrieval for the use in criminal investigations, complaint investigations, policy and procedural review for compliance, identifying training issues and good practices, and criminal prosecution.
