Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $48,891)
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 Goldsboro and Wayne County have been identified as disparate and have agreed to evenly split the aggregate of funds allocated to them under the Fiscal Year 2014 JAG Program. Both jurisdictions will use their share of the funds to purchase a police cruiser for each of their law enforcement departments. The new vehicles will allow each department to replace a higher mileage vehicle in their fleet. NCA/NCF
