Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $30,921)

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).

Douglas County will use the Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to purchase a modern computer-based electronic vehicle key tracking system for the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. The project goal is to assist the department in its effort to ensure efficiency in asset tracking. The new system will allow deputies and supervisors to operate and manage vehicles more effectively by using technology instead of personnel resources.
