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 Fiscal Year 2014 JAG award to fund their Mobile Data Project, which will enhance deputies' ability to perform their duties safer and more efficiently. The funds will be used to purchase Mobile CAD software and other software that will be installed on mobile laptop computers in deputy's vehicles. The software will provide deputies with real time information that is entered by the 911 Center on each call, contains mapping displays that shows the locations of each deputy and a map and directions to each call, and provides a link to North Carolina Criminal Information System and to NCIC. Funds will also pay for the installation and training for each deputy in the application of the software. NCA/NCF
