From: Scott Booth

COUNCIL ACTION
First Reading:     12/04/2018
Final Adoption:   12/20/2018
SUMMARY
The Danville Police Department has been informed it is eligible for a grant of $33,274 to be used for law enforcement purposes, from the United States Department of Justice 2018 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program.  Funds from this grant will be used to equip our officers with police bicycles that will enable them to more closely engage with our community.  Bicycles offer the advantage of street-level interaction with community members that is often missed in the isolated environment of a passing police car.  This opportunity for direct community engagement will allow the Department to more effectively identify issues in neighborhoods and establish the relationships, trust, and lines of communication that are necessary elements of the cooperative effort to reduce crime and improve safety in our City.
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the City Council adopt the attached Ordinance Amending the FY 2019 Budget Appropriation Ordinance by anticipating revenues in the amount of $33,274 from the United States Department of Justice 2018 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program.
