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).

Williamsburg County, through the sheriff's office, will use the FY 2010 JAG award in the amount of $15,489 to purchase law enforcement equipment. Specific purchases will include duty belts, flashlight holders, handcuff cases, holsters, gloves, and body armor. The equipment will promote officer safety and will enhance the service to the citizens of Williamsburg County.
