Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $12,112)

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).

Caroline County will utilize its Fiscal Year 2010 Local JAG funds in the amount of $12,112 to support a new records management system (RMS) which will require new servers to support the upgrade. The Caroline County Sheriff's Office will purchase the RMS server to enhance the sheriff Office's ability to share information with other agencies. This will also allow the Sheriff's Office to effectively collect statistics that will be used to prevent crime.
