Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $165,304)

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 Polk, through the Polk County Sheriff's Office, will utilize the 2009 JAG funds to support efforts to establish the Polk County Visual Collaboration Display System Project. The project will provide a means to visually display law enforcement and public safety operations countywide with real time coverage. The Polk County Sheriff's Office will purchase technology and computer equipment to implement the project.
