Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $12,725)

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 communications equipment and supplies for the city police department. Current handheld radios are soon to be obsolete and will no longer be serviced in the near future. New radios will allow law enforcement officers to communicate effectively and deliver services to the community in a more efficient, effective, and safe manner. NCA/NCF
