Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $22,555)

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 city of Hartsville will use its Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award to support their fleet of vehicles in the police patrol division. Due to budget restraints, the police department has not been able to replace vehicles in the past three years. JAG funds will allow for the purchase of one full package patrol car and supplemental emergency supplies. The new vehicle will increase visibility of law enforcement, reduce funding spent on costly repairs to a high mileage vehicle, and supply the citizens of Hartsville with efficient and timely police services.
