Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $16,283)

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 disparate jurisdictions of the city of Norman and Cleveland County, OK will utilize this 2016 JAG Local award to support law enforcement initiatives. These grant funds will be used for training and certification, purchasing equipment to help locate at-risk missing persons, purchasing an additional eCitation tool, and purchasing multi-use video cameras as well as other equipment. The goals of the program are to allow for more efficient and effective crime scene processing, reduced danger to at-risk missing persons, and a reduction in the number of collisions.
