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).

Sumpter County will use the JAG award to fund the Sumter County Sheriff's Office Criminal Enhancement Division's Technology Enhancement Project. The Sumter County Sheriff's Office will purchase computer software to collect data from criminal cases to analyze and provide training on the usage of the computer software. The equipment will assist the Sumter County Sheriff's Office in keeping its employees and the public safe and secure.
