Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $118,476)

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 county of Prince William will use JAG funds to enhance law enforcement operations. Specific grant funded activity will include the purchase of specialized software that will enable electronic distribution and searches of the county police department's organizational and management policies; an electronic ticketing system that will enable officers to issue tickets and citations from mobile computers while they are on patrol; and an electronic vehicle crash reporting system that will link to state databases.
