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).

Union County will use the Fiscal Year 2012 JAG award to fund the Sheriff's Interview Room Recording Evidence System (SIRES) Project. Funds will be used to purchase and install covert digital cameras, encoders, power supplies, work stations, monitors, and custom acoustical wall panels for use in interview rooms.
