Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $28,346)

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 disparate jurisdictions will utilize the JAG award to support law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to purchase and install law enforcement equipment and technology. The project goals are to increase the number of timely early warning notifications, increase the number of mobile data terminals, and increase the number of self-initiated activities by deputies. Both governmental entities have agreed to allow the City of Wilson to serve as the fiscal agent and have agreed that the Wilson Police Department will receive the full amount of the grant, but will purchase agreed upon equipment for the Sheriffs Department. The City of Wilson will spend their allocated amounts for the purchase of computer equipment and software. NCA/NCF
