Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $10,262)

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 Bradley will use their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $10,262 to upgrade their mobile data equipment. Specifically, the Bradley County Sheriff's Office will purchase a storage server for in-car video equipment. This in-car video equipment is now in use in all patrol units. The project will allow the officers to submit paperless reports to supervisors for approval. Reports are eventually entered into the Tennessee's Incident Based Reporting System in accordance with state regulations with most of the process completed wirelessly though an infrastructure of transmitters, global positioning modules and radio modems built with LLEBG funds.
