Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $964,678)

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).

Salt Lake City, serving as the fiscal agent for this award, will share the Fiscal Year 2009 JAG funds with eight jurisdictions within Salt Lake County. In a disparate situation, the units of local government must apply for an award with a single, joint appliation. Each jurisdiction's allocation will be used for activities and projects that will provide meaningful and measurable outcomes consistent with the goals of JAG to include the purchases of an in-car E-ticketing and Traffic Accident Reporting System; a tri-axle command center trailer with the equipment necessary to operating the trailer on-scene; Western Identification Network Global Workstation-Latent; in-car digital cameras; patrol radar systems, and other equipment for law enforcement agencies across the county.
