Government - Gov. Perry picture AUSTIN–Gov. Rick Perry has awarded $223,000 to the City of Pasadena to purchase specialized crime lab equipment, including a Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer, Laboratory Management Information System and an analytical balance. This equipment will allow the city’s crime lab to maintain accreditation requirements and to ensure quality and efficient reporting.

This grant is awarded under the federal Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program and is distributed by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (CJD).

“This grant will provide the City of Pasadena with updated equipment and necessary resources to better serve its community and protect our citizens,” Perry said.

The JAG program provides support to state and local governments for a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime and to improve the criminal justice system.

Each year, CJD awards more than $113 million in grants for a variety of juvenile justice, criminal justice and victim service programs.
