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).

Rockdale County will use the JAG funds to upgrade and install servers to support the county's integrated judicial management system. The system is utilized by more than 300 users on a daily basis, and records data for the jail, law enforcement incident reporting, warrants and civil papers, and case management for the Office of the District Attorney and all Rockdale County courts. Major deliverables include planning of the system architecture, utilizing the proposed additional servers and upgrades, coordinating with the vendor of the integrated judicial management system, submitting requisitions, issuing purchase orders, receiving equipment, equipment installation, and system tests.
