Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $38,490)

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 Rockdale County Sheriff's Office (RCSO) will use Rockdale County's Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to purchase two police motorcycles. The police motorcycles are considered an asset in traffic enforcement because of their fuel efficiency and ability to move through congested traffic to roadway emergency scenes quicker. The RCSO's goal is to enhance traffic safety in the county through effective enforcement of Georgia's traffic laws and quicker response to roadway emergency scenes.
