Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $21,259)

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 jurisdictions consisting of Colquitt County and the city of Moultrie will use their JAG award in the amount of $21,259 to support the purchase of a police vehicle cruiser. This purchase will allow extra time to be devoted to local programs for proactive responses to crime problems. The City of Moultrie, serving as the fiscal agent, will monitor the project using specific measurable outcomes. Coordination plans include the involvement of the Moultrie Police Department, Colquitt Sheriff's Department, and local business/civic organizations as well as local citizen groups.
