Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $104,458)

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).

Spartanburg County will use the JAG funds to support the crime fighting efforts of the Spartanburg Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's office will obtain mobile computer terminals for their patrol vehicles, which will increase access to information that deputies need to fight and prevent crime. This will enhance community safety in Spartanburg County.
