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 Rowan County and the city of Salisbury will share this Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award.

The county of Rowan will utilize its portion of the funds to purchase gang tracking software to record gang activity and events; which will facilitate a proactive approach to combating gang activity. They will also purchase an in-car video camera system. The city of Salisbury will purchase new mobile data GPS based tracking devices to allow real-time tracking of vehicles. Additionally, funds will be used for Police to Citizen (P2C) software. The P2C is an internet based application for citizens to search information posted by the Salisbury Police Department.
