Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $15,557)

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 will utilize the JAG award to expand mobile data systems. The funds will be used to purchase modems, and data packages for existing smart phones and mobile data terminals, and purchase community policing items. The goals of this project are to enhance both communications, and community relations. This strategy meets unfunded needs, expands communications, community involvement, and increases overall efficiency.
