Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $30,855)
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 city of Ardmore and Carter County, disparate jurisdictions, will use FY15 JAG funds to support the Ardmore Police Department and the Carter County Sheriffs Department with the purchase of law enforcement equipment and technology enhancement. The Ardmore Police Department will serve as the fiscal agent managing the JAG award. The goal is to increase essential law enforcement services and officer and community safety through improved technology and equipment.
