Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $11,422)

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 grantee will utilize JAG funds to purchase and install an audio/visual interview room recording system. This equimpent will allow the sheriff's office to record both audio and video from multiple witness/suspect interview rooms, which will enhance the prosecution of cases by providing a means to demonstrate to the court or to a jury exactly what occurred during a custodial interrogation of a suspect or arrestee.
