Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $29,711)

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 disparate jurisdictions will use the JAG funds to continue the purchase of air cards to maintain the operational stability of the existing mobile data terminals (MDTs). Doing so will ensure that officers from both agencies have the ability to collaborate and communicate with state agencies, dispatch services and each other. This communication capability facilitates more effective law enforcement activities and increases officer safety. NCA/NCF
