Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $11,768)
The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local government, 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 the city of Prineville and Crook County will use their Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award to support equipment initiatives in each jurisdiction. The city of Prineville will purchase six video cameras for recording and tracking, traffic violations, foot pursuits, court decisions, and evidence gathering. Crook County will use JAG funds to purchase a back-up power generator for the Sheriff's office.
