Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $12,402)

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 Stone County Sheriff's Office will utilize its Fiscal Year 2008 JAG funds to purchase law enforcement equipment. This equipment will increase officer and public safety. The two pieces of equipment to be purchased are a 511 Tactical 5-in-1 Jacket with ANSI II Reflective Traffic Vest, and 511 Tactical Gladiator SL5 Slash Resistant Gloves.
