RE: Justice Assistance Grant (JAG)|
March 30, 2020
The City of Newport News is eligible to apply for the 2019 Local Solicitation Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program Grant. This grant is an annual grant that is awarded by the federal government based on a locality’s population and crime statistics. The JAG funds allow localities to support a broad array of activities to prevent and control crime, based on their local needs and conditions.
The FY2019 federal allocation for the City of Newport News is $104,183. The intended use of these funds by the Police Department is to (1) use the funds for specialized training i.e., basic investigation and implicit bias and other relevant topics in today’s community policing; (2) upgrade existing overt and covert surveillance equipment that has become inoperable; (3) purchase of specialized equipment, equipment will include Automated License Plate Readers (ALPR) that receive real time crime data on stolen license plates on vehicles suspected of being involved in crime activity; and (4) to purchase Tactical Operations Unit equipment for specialty team members to respond to high risk situations.
If you would like to comment on the use of these funds, please email the Police Department at email@example.com.
