Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $11,646)

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 Johnson City and Washington County will use their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $11,646 to continue their efforts to address crime prevention, crime control, and public safety. The fiscal agent, Johnson City, will use $5,823 to purchase taser devices to maximize officer safety. The Washington County Sheriff's Office will use $5,823 to purchase replacement sidearms for its officers. These purchases will ensure the safety of both officer and the community within the two respective jurisdictions.
