Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $12,592)

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 grant funds to purchase a computer software interface between the sheriff's department's records management system and the county prosecutor's office case management system. The data transferred in the interface will be entered by the officer in the field and transferred from the law enforcement agency directly to the prosecutor and then on to the court level without duplicate entry. The project goal is to increase the efficient use of law enforcement manpower. NCA/NCF
