Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $12,382)

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).

Saline County will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award to purchase an electronic security system which will include a 16 channel digital video recorder/video server, portable metal detectors, and tasers. The goals of this project are to provide an electronic and video security system for the Saline County Annex Building that houses court records and to provide tasers and hand held metal detectors for the security personnel working at the Saline County Annex Building.
