Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $182,940)

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).

Wake County and the city of Raleigh have been identified as disparate and will share the aggregate of funds allocated to them through the FY 2013 JAG Program to provide law enforcement the required tools to enhance apprehension documentation, increase productivity, and promote and support strategies to reduce crime. The project will focus on improving access to visual data of patrol officer activities, as well as addressing crime prevention in select neighborhoods. Wake County Sheriff's Office will use their share of the funds to purchase laptops and in-car cameras for law enforcement and the Raleigh Police Department will use JAG funds for overtime for officers to conduct crime solving initiatives in the city of Raleigh.
