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 Greenville, through the police department, will utilize the FY 2010 JAG funds to continue the enhancement of public safety through the use of modern technology. The Greenville Police Department will enhance services through the use of cameras and accompanying forensic image clarification system. The police department will purchase a forensic image clarification system, a pole camera surveillance system, and in-car cameras.
