Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $22,126)

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).

This Fiscal Year 2011 JAG award will be used to purchase a port expansion switchboard and new computers for the police department. The sheriff's office will use remaining funds to purchase a used police cruiser and emergency equipment for this vehicle. Collectively, these equipment purchases will serve to reduce area crime and violence.
