Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $28,929)

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 city of Sanford will use the JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment for the Sanford Police Department. The Sanford Police Department will procure in-car video systems, Traffic Crash Investigation Software and a Supply Inventory Management System. The law enforcement equipment for this project will provide officers with improved efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of services to its citizens.
