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).

Spotsylvania County will use the Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award to enable the Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Office and Commonwealth Attorney's Office to improve the quality of life through a partnership with the community by protecting life, property, and reducing the fear of crime. The goal is to provide equipment and supplies that will improve or enhance law enforcement, prosecution, and court programs within Spotsylvania County. Grant funds will purchase mobile data terminals, docking stations, an electronic media presentation system, and high speed scanners.
