Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $17,576)

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 Pasquotank County and Elizabeth City will share FY 2010 JAG funds to enhance technology and support crime prevention. Elizabeth City, serving as the fiscal agent, will purchase mobile data terminals, tasers, crime scene investigatory tools, and a basketball goal system for the Police Athetlic League (PAL) Program. This equipment will enhance the efficiency and effectiveness within the department; provide citizens with the highest degree of law enforcement professionalism; reduce crime and the fear of crime within the community; and to deter juvenile crime.
