Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $121,209)

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 support law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to support targeted police overtime, officer training, equipment for mobile data terminals, digital interviewing equipment, and police patrol bicycles and related equipment. The goals of this project are to increase communication, information sharing, enhance officer knowledge through training, and increase community police presence in targeted areas. This project meets unfunded needs and expands communications, community involvement, and increases officer and agency efficiency.
