Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $13,399)

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).

Anderson County will use JAG funds to enhance the security of its juvenile court. Through the grant, the county will direct funds towards equipment needed for a new surveillance system. Specific grant funded purchases will include a digital video recorder, cameras, monitors, a ceiling mount, and single channel transceivers. Funds will also be used for installation, programming, and instruction on the use of the new system.
