Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $20,652)

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).

Greene County and the city of Fairborn will share the FY 09 JAG award to purchase in-car printers for patrol cruisers for the issuance of criminal and traffic citations for their law enforcement agencies. Both the county and the city will equally share the award. The printers will save time, make the citations more legible, and eliminate errors. They will also consolidate the work of the records clerks, as the citation will automatically be entered into the database used by both law enforcement officers and court system. This will allow the officers to spend more time in community policing efforts, resulting in better service to the citizens.
