Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $17,239)

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 Beaverton Police Department (BPD) will use grant funds to purchase equipment for the patrol, criminal investigations, and training divisions with the objective of improving officer safety, enhancing operational and tactical capabilities, and increasing training efficiency. The BPD proposes the use of JAG funds to purchase portable security/privacy barrier screens; robotic firearms target system; first responder medical kits; digital voice recorders, and a hand-held telescopic pole camera.
