Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $20,548)

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 disparate jurisdictions of the city of Rapid City and the county of Pennington will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $20,548 to purchase four new in-car video cameras. The new mobile digital video recorder systems will provide information for proper chain-of-custody situations, reporting, and automated archiving. The effectiveness and efficiency of the digital recording system will enhance both jurisdictions' overall technology capacity.
