Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $169,640)
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).
Forsyth County and the city of High Point have been identified as disparate and have agreed to share the aggregate of funds allocated to them under the FY 2013 JAG program. Their goals are to: Improve operability of F6 Andros Robot Tactical Equipment through system upgrades; improve traffic data collection with the addition of 3 new traffic analyzers (speed mats); improve the officer citation issuance process through the purchase and installation of in-car printers for field officers; and improve evidence recording of deputy/citizen interaction during field encounters through the use of Flex Axon body cameras, which will allow video and audio recording of all interactions between deputies and citizens in the field.
