Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $11,903)

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 grantee will use the JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment. Specific purchases will include in-car video camera systems. The project goals are to provide additional safety and security measures for officers and the public, help reduce the liability of the sheriff's office, simplify incident reporting and reviews, assist in prosecution and case resolution, and offer an additional form of training for officers.
