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 Jefferson County and the city of Steubenville will use their FY 2009 Local JAG funds ($12,497) towards a joint project. The county, serving as the fiscal agent, will purchase computer hardware and software for both departments. The Steubenville Police Department will purchase seven Lenovo Think centre A58 computers, along with seven Viewsonic vx1962wm flat screen monitors. The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office will purchase seven HP DC 7100 computer towers. The acquisition of the software and equipment will allow officers to access programs in a more timely and efficient manner.
