Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $14,555)

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).

Stokes County, through the Stokes County Sheriff's Department, will utilize the Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to enhance their Sex Offender Registration Program to assure its continued compliance with the increased requirements of the US Codes and the North Carolina General Statutes. The Stokes County Sheriff's Department will accomplish this by increasing the number of hours available for part-time officers to pursue the mandated increase in reporting and verification.
