Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $48,714)

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 Bulloch county and the city of Statesboro will use the JAG award in the amount of $48,714 towards personnel and law enforcement initiatives. The city of Statesboro, serving as the fiscal agent, will purchase a police K-9 dog, forensic mobile phone analysis device, rifles and accessories. Bulloch county will use funds to purchase computers, office furniture for planning raids, digital cameras, thermal imaging, smart board and technical audio equipment. The goal of their project is to improve the efficiency, safety and services offered by the Statesboro Police Department and Bulloch county Sheriff's Office by providing needed equipment and technology improvements. Funds will be split evenly between jurisdictions.
