Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $54,195)

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 county of Athens-Clarke will use the 2009 JAG award to fund the acquisition of innovative technologies that allow for greater efficiencies, as well as a greater level of interaction among all interested stakeholders, especially fellow law enforcement agencies. The Athens-Clarke County Police Department (ACCPD) plans to acquire one additional records management server and associated software in connection with mobile data capabilities, two additional mobile in-car laptops for the Clarke County Sherriff's Office, and Laserfiche software capabilities for all ACCPD investigators.
