Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $13,554)

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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Carroll County and the town of Conway will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $13,544 to purchase office furniture, a generator, a radio, and x-ray detection equipment. The town of Conway will use their share of the JAG funds to purchase new office furniture for the police department. The town will also be purchasing a power inverter that will power newly purchased accident reconstruction equipment. The remaining funds will be used to purchase a generator that will be used mostly at the town shooting range to provide power for lighting systems and moving targets. The generator will also be used to provide power at crime scenes. Carroll County will use grant funds to purchase x-ray detection equipment for use at the Carroll County Complex building. They will also purchase an XTS 5000 radio for the operations division at the sheriff's office.
