Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $19,177)

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 Seminole will utilize its Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $19,177 to purchase law enforcement equipment. Specifically, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office will purchase three digital in-car video cameras and accessories. The Seminole County Sheriff's Office will be able to support and enhance its ability to prosecute cases, provide proof of alcohol/drug use, and provide credible testimony in court through the use of these new in-car cameras. This equipment will assist in achieving the Sheriff's Office's ultimate technology goal of outfitting their 260 law enforcement vehicles with in-car video cameras.
