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).
Martin County will use this grant to support law enforcement upgrades for the sheriff's office. Specifically, funds will be used to purchase a security camera system and related shelving. The goal of this project is to protect the security of vehicles and vessels that are an integral part of the County's mission to protect and defend citizens and visitors. NCA/NCF
