Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $13,597)

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).

Scott County will utilize their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $13,597 to purchase law enforcement equipment, supplies, and pay for training. They will utilize the funds to purchase a digital court recorder system, portable public announcement system, digital video camera, laptop, two hundred compact discs, external hard drive, two hundred DVD's, six microphones, six speakers, and to send two staffers to training. The goals of this project are to provide a current state of the art audio/video recording system to be used in the courts of Scott County and a portable public address system to provide courts with a concise sound system for hearing all parties during a court proceeding. The utilized funds will also send two staff members to Nashville for two days of training on the use of a digital court recorder system.
