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).

Stone County will use its Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award to support the Sheriff's Office's Records Management Software and Website Development; referred to as the Web-Based Smart Policing Project. More specifically, Stone County will enter into a contract with a records software provider and marketing company to provide enhanced technology for the Stone County Sheriff's Office. The project goals are to improve community-policing efforts through web-based, smart policing technology, increase arrests through transparency in the operations of the Sheriffs Office, and improve information systems for criminal justice utilized by the Sheriff's Office.
