Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $13,026)

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 Forest Park Police Department will use the FY 206 JAG funds to purchase software and hardware that will allow the police department to monitor cameras purchased by local shareholders. This equipment will allow Forest Park to coordinate with the business community and surrounding governmental entities to leverage their investment in surveillance cameras by remotely viewing the camera feeds to gather evidence or enhance first responder response.
