Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $43,259)

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 the county of Sutter and the city of Yuba will use their JAG award to support systems improvement and equipment purchases across the county. The county of Sutter, serving as the fiscal agent, will use grant funds to pay for ongoing software and hardware updates on mobile databases in the field. The city of Yuba will use grant funds towards various technology components to keep officers and detectives efficient. Specific purchases include digital voice recorders, evidence lockers, and cell phone data extractors. The goals are to increase officer efficiency, security, and the overall technological abilities of the department.
