Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $17,160)

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).

Marlboro County will utilize the FY 2010 JAG funds to purchase equipment integral to the operations of the sheriff's office. The Marlboro Sheriff's Office will purchase equipment to enhance or replace existing equipment that is either obsolete or nearing its life expectancy. The equipment purchases will include desktop computers, a file server, hand radios, a laptop computer, a generator, cameras, camouflage pants, Desert TFX boots, flashlights, eye/hearing protection, K9 GPS tracking device, emergency lighting, and ammunition. The goal of this project is to upgrade the necessary equipment to continue to provide essential services to the community.
