Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $24,971)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Hunt County and the city of Greenville will share the JAG award in the amount of $24,971 to enhance compliance with required laws and reporting procedures, fund prosecution efforts, and provide rapid availability for field officers to have information available for enforcement and safety purposes. Hunt County, serving as fiscal agent, will use $13,734 to purchase mobile laptops for their patrol vehicles. The city of Greenville will use $11,237 to replace two outdated camera systems.
