Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $12,589)

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 county of Taney will utilize its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $12,589, and local dollars in the amount of $315,573, to purchase and install software in the Sheriff Department and patrol cars. The cost includes data conversion, training, installation, and maintenance. The software will aid the department with real time reporting and with the collection and analyzing of crime data. The objective is to have officers spend more time on patrol, reduce response time, and increase both officer and community safety.
