Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $13,942)

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 Winder, through the police department, will use the JAG grant to support the Out With The Old Program. Under this program, the police department will replace old traffic related equipment such as in-car cameras that still use the video tapes and require frequent repairs. The police department will also use funds to continue drug enforcement activities that started with the FY 2007 JAG award. This will be an ongoing program to reduce drugs and drug gangs from neighborhoods in the city and reduce traffic related injuries and deaths.
