Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $35,072)

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consisting of the city of Clinton ($35,072) and Clinton County will use their FY 2009 Local JAG funds to replace outdated data management systems and supplement a staff member's salary. The city of Clinton, serving as the fiscal agent, will assign one staff member from the City Clerk's Office to oversee the JAG award. In addition, the city of Clinton will replace and install a new digital storage system with audio, video, and digital records. Clinton County has declined to use any funds.
