Agenda Item

Consideration of Application for the 2019 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG C & D)


Police Department

Staff recommends approval to apply for, and accept if awarded, the Federal Fiscal Year 2019 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG C & D).


Law enforcement officers may encounter situations where deadly force is used against them or another person. Active shooter incidents are one of those situations. These incidents are unpredictable and evolve quickly. The immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to end any active shooter incident. These incidents cause life threatening injuries to those involved. The Lady Lake Police Department is requesting that the proposed award for the JAG C grant of $4,312.00 be used to purchase Active Shooter kits for all officers. These kits are designed to treat penetrating trauma and severe bleeding and easily attach to the officer’s duty belt for rapid deployment. These kits will include medical first aid equipment such as a tourniquet, emergency trauma dressing, compressed gauze and other items not necessarily found in a standard first aid kit. The JAG D grant has not been released yet but permission to accept it is being requested at this time.
