Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $30,016)
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 jurisdiction consisting of Wayne County and Richmond City will equally share the FY 2009 Local JAG award. Wayne County Sheriff's Office will use their share to purchase two off-road emergency vehicles, and Richmond City will use their share of the funds to purchase three in-car video recording systems.
