Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $27,911)

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).

St. Charles County will use its FY 09 JAG award to support technological advances for the St. Charles County Sheriff's Department. Funds will be used to implement and install an electronic evidence documentation system. The county's goal is to increase the efficiency of evidence collection from cell phones and other electronic devices by the Cyber Crime Unit.
