Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $26,181)

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).

Iredell County will use JAG funds to enhance dissemination of crime data to the public. The sheriff's office will use funds to upgrade the hardware and software needed so that crime mapping and data are available through a web-based program. The sheriff's office will also provide public access to crime data at their main office and satellite offices by having web-based computers available for use.
