Information
RECOMMENDATION
Ratify the acceptance of a grant award from the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division for funding for the Nueces County Medical Examiner’s Equipment Project.
BACKGROUND
The Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (CJD) has several grant programs available. The County Essential Services Program provides financial assistance to counties for essential public services including law enforcement services, jail services, court services, or reimbursement of extraordinary costs incurred for the investigation or prosecution of a capital murder or crimes committed because of bias or prejudice.
DISCUSSION
On August 20, 2014, the Commissioners Court authorized the submission of a grant application to the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division. The Medical Examiner’s Equipment Project is an equipment-only grant and will cover the purchase of technology that will enhance the Medical Examiner’s ability to collect and process latent palm and fingerprint data. That data can then be used to search local, state and federal databases for missing or unidentified persons from the field, particularly in a mass fatality event.

The grant award totals $21,038.85 and there is no match required.
