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 Washington County and the city of Greenville will share this Fiscal Year 2010 JAG Local award. In a disparate situation, the units of local government must apply for an award with a single, joint application. Washington County will be the fiscal agent for this award. Washington County and Greenville City will used JAG funds to purchase a variety of law enforcement equipment for the Sheriff's Office and Police Department aimed at increasing officer response time and solidifying convictions through improved data gathering and commmunications.
