Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $20,583)

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 county of Warrick will use its Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award to purchase two mobile computers with software for the County Sheriffs Department. The purchase and installation of mobile computers, printers, scanners, and Net Motion software will provide patrol officers access to vital information regarding the identification of crime suspects and wanted persons. The Net Motion software will provide a secure connection from mobile work stations to the Indiana Data Communication Center (IDACS) as well as the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). The technological upgrades will increase the safety of citizens and law enforcement officers.
