Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $15,985)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local governments, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and 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, including 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 and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The Clover Police Department will use JAG funds to purchase nine computers, one hand-held radio, and 50 traffic cones. New computers will help the department and the officers in their effectiveness, efficiency, and will reduce the chance of valuable data being lost. The additional equipment will increase the town's ability to ensure safer public events and to manage emergency situations.
