Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $59,816)

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 program 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 city of Rocky Mount and Nash County have been identified as disparate and agreed to share the aggregate of funds allocated to them under the FY 2013 JAG Program for enhancement of equipment and technologies for their law enforcement agencies. The Rocky Mount Police Department will use their share of the funds to purchase in-car digital camera systems, collision sensors (for use with the camera systems), and LED flashlights and holders. The Nash County Sheriff's Office will use their share of the funds to purchase duty holsters for duty weapons, rain coats, and tactical gun mount lights. The aforementioned equipment purchases will supplement operations, enhance officer safety, and support the delivery of services to the community. NCA/NCF
