Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $28,067)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states, tribes, and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own local needs and conditions. Grant funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The Snohomish County will use their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $28,067 to purchase law enforcement equipment. These purchases include nine digital cameras, nine digital flash units, 18 compact flash memory cards, three carrying cases, and a forensic cellular phone with supporting software. The use of the technology purchased through the JAG funds will make deputies more efficient in their daily operations.
