Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $10,244)

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 grant recipient will use the JAG award to purchase less-than-lethal tasers and anti-auto theft steering wheel locks for the city police department. Tasers will allow officers in the field to better control a situation, adding a layer of safety between law enforcement and suspected criminals. Steering wheel anti-auto theft locking devices will be distributed to the public, assisting in the reduction of auto thefts within the community. NCA/NCF
