Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval to apply for and accept this grant, if awarded for $25,526.00.

 

Analysis:

 The United States Department of Justice Bureau of Justice Assistance advised the City of Leesburg that grant funds of $25,526.00 are available to the City of Leesburg under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program.    These grant funds will be used to purchase and install six (6) digital in-car video recording systems.  The City does not have digital recording systems so this is a new technology initiative. The systems will assist in maintaining our Police Department’s professional image as well as community credibility.  The systems will also aid in increasing officer safety.

 

Options:

1.  Apply for and accept the grant of $25,526.00 with no grant matching funds required or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact

The funds from this grant of $25,526.00 will be used to purchase six (6) digital in-car video recording systems.
