Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $15,121)

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).

Campbell County will use its local JAG funds to enhance the effectiveness of public safety services by deploying additional specialized digital video recorders in marked response vehicles. The recorders will enhance officer and public safety, increase accountability of officers, and improve the prosecution of offenders. The grant will fund three complete digital video recording systems.
