Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $24,547)

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).

Baldwin County will use the JAG award for the renovation of an existing building to transfer the 24-hour E911 Operations Center. Renovations will include, but are not limited to, upgrading the electrical and plumbing systems. The project goal is to ensure the best possible working environment for the county dispatchers.
