Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $58,250)

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 Bismarck and Burleigh County will use JAG funds in the amount of $58,250 to purchase law enforcement supplies, equipment, and other items for criminal justice use to enhance the safety, effectiveness and efficiency of the departments. The city of Bismarck, serving as the fiscal agent, will use JAG funds to purchase computers and monitors to replace those that have old operating systems and those that become unserviceable. The Burleigh County Sheriff's Department will use JAG funds for a police-equipped off highway vehicle (OHV) to access locations that are inaccessible with their other vehicles. The Sheriff's Department also plans to purchase a trailer to tow with the OHV as well as install a police-type radio in the OHV.
