Body

The Coral Gables Police Department intends to use grant funds to purchase customized Complete Child ID Kits and Child Safety Wristbands from KidStar Safety for distribution as part of a child safety initiative.  Providing Child ID Kits to parents in the community will increase the information available to our agency and other law enforcement agencies around the country should a child go missing.

 

The State of Florida Department of Law Enforcement awarded the Coral Gables Police Department a 2016 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG-Direct) in the amount of $10,000 to purchase 8,000 customized Complete Child ID Kits and 8,000 Child Safety Wristbands for distribution throughout the community.

 

An amendment to the Fiscal Year 2015-2016 Annual Budget is required to recognize the $10,000 grant funds as revenue and to appropriate such funds to cover the cost of the grant expenditures.
