Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $392,767)

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 city of Camden, serving as the fiscal agent, will share this Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award with 6 disparate jurisdictions within Camden County. In a disparate situation, the units of local government must apply for an award with a single, joint application. The jurisdictions plan to purchase firearms, computer hardware and software for forensic video clarification and analysis, laptops, in-car video systems, audio recording equipment, and other equipment for law enforcement. Additionally, funds will be used to provide overtime, training, and support prevention and education programs.
