The Napa Police Department, on behalf of the City of Napa, is applying for a U.S. Department of Justice Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Grant (JAG) in the amount of $19,208. JAG funds can be used for local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support and information systems for criminal justice. The 2016 JAG grant, if funded, will be used to purchase and implement the text-to-911 service, providing an alternative if a voice call to 911 might be difficult or impossible. This investment would enhance the City/County Law Enforcement capabilities and aid in providing efficiencies to help us better serve the community.
Per grant application requirements, applicants must provide an assurance that the application or any future amendment was made public and an opportunity to comment was provided to citizens and to neighborhood community organizations. Comments may be submitted in writing no later than 5:00 p.m. on July 13, 2016 to the attention of Joy Riesenberg by email or mail:
