Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $10,250)

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 comprising of Talladega City and County will share the JAG funds. The Talladega City Police Department will use their share to replace outdated equipment. The city will purchase 13 cameras and an alternate light system to help further the investigation of crimes such as burglaries, robberies, thefts, rapes, and domestic violence. The Talladega County Sheriff's Office will use their share to purchase new laptop computers for the investigations division.
