WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 8, 2009) — Congressman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) announced that the U.S. Department of Justice will release more than $14,000 to Pulaski County for the purchase of car video cameras, personal recording devices, and an interrogation room recorder for the sheriff’s department. The grant will be distributed through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (Byrne-JAG).

"I am so pleased that Pulaski County will secure a federal grant to strengthen their law enforcement agency. As a former prosecuting attorney, I know how important it is to ensure our law enforcement agencies have the staff and tools they need to protect the community. This federal grant will purchase equipment, including cameras and recording devices, that has proven to deter crime and provide an extra degree of protection for officers. This is a good thing for the agency and for the community,” said Skelton.

The Byrne-JAG Program allows states and local law enforcement agencies to conduct a broad range of activities, including the purchase of equipment, the training of law enforcement officers, and the carrying out of school violence programs.

Congressman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) serves as chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. Congressman Skelton’s website is at http://www.house.gov/skelton.
