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 support criminal justice initiatives. The goals of this project are to: provide the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office Computer Crimes detectives with the ability to digitally analyze seized computers for evidence of violations of state or federal laws; provide Criminal Intelligence detectives the equipment necessary to digitally capture images of persons of interest or suspects involved in crimes in Charlotte County; and enhance the technology of the Punta Gorda Police Department's training facility with audio/video and training aid technology.
