Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $132,928)

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 the city of Huntington and Cabell County will use the FY 2010 JAG award towards law enforcement and technology initiatives. The city of Huntington, serving as fiscal agent, will use their share of the grant to purchase a police cruiser, light bars, docking ports, computers, mobile radios, general and tactical equipment, and to support overtime and training. Cabell County will use their share of the grant to purchase general law enforcement and tactical equipment. These purchases will help improve public safety throughout the county.
