Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $11,692)

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 purchase a Crash Data Retrieval Tool. The goals of this project are to allow for the retrieval of vital data from vehicles involved in a crash, to better prepare officers for potential criminal or civil litigation, and also to allow investigators to complete a more comprehensive investigation and validate opinions, assumptions, or witness statements that otherwise would have been documented as factual statements.
