Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $24,680)

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 County of Darlington will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) award in the amount of $24,680 to support and expand their Automated Incident Report Writing System. This system, with the upgrades, will allow deputies to work in real time status reducing the number of man-hours as well as the mileage and cost of vehicle operations. It is anticipated that the deputies will increase their productivity and enhance their service to the community. The JAG grant will allow the Darlington County Sheriff's Office to acquire twenty laptop computers with air cards and air time to enable incident report writing.
