Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $21,169)

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 city of Sumter will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $21,169 to purchase records management software licenses. The software/licenses will be added to the department's current software program. The software will be used to improve the quality of reports, improve time management, and the electronic format will make it easier to locate reports for future use.
