Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $17,684)

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 Salisbury and the county of Wicomico are disparate jurisdictions with the city serving as the fiscal agent for the 2008 JAG award. The city and county will evenly share the 2008 JAG award ($17,684). The Salisbury Police Department will use its share to upgrade computer equipment and improve internal/external data linkages. The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office will use its portion of the JAG funds to purchase mobile data computers and in-car cameras.
