Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $16,820)

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).

Harnett County will use the JAG award to enhance the efficiency of their Sheriff's Department. Funds will be used to purchase computer software for deputies. This project will improve communications from dispatches to deputies, provide access to a board range of programs including data sharing programs, improve officer safety, and improve overall policing by the Harnett County Sheriff's Office.
