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).

Washington County, acting as the fiscal agent, submitted a joint application in coordination with Greenville City. The two jurisdictions will share $49,559 in Fiscal Year 2009 JAG funds. Washington County, through the sheriff's department, will use their share of the grant to purchase an ATV, a long range surveillance camera, digital cameras, and computers. The city of Greenville will use its portion to purchase computers, digital cameras, digital voice recorders, a VHS duplicator and recorder, and software. Both jurisdictions will use $1,239 to pay for costs associated with managing the grant award.
