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 Wayne County and the city of Goldsboro will use the FY 2010 JAG award in the amount of $63,751 for law enforcement initiatives. The city of Goldsboro, acting as the fiscal agent, submitted a joint application with the county. Both jurisdictions will utilize the funds to purchase police cruisers and the necessary equipment to outfit the vehicles. Funds will be split evenly between both jurisdictions.
