The Winston-Salem Police Department is requesting public comment regarding the 2020 Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program, which is administered by the US Department of Justice. 

The City of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County law enforcement agencies are eligible to share $192,045 in 2020 Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) funds. These agencies have been designated as a disparate jurisdiction and have agreed to each share 50 percent of the grant award ($96,022.50 to each agency). Funds must be used for law enforcement purposes. The City of Winston-Salem will serve as fiscal agent for the grant.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office and the Winston-Salem Police Department are proposing to use their shares of grant award funding to purchase law enforcement equipment and software.

The Winston-Salem City Council will vote on the proposed use of funds by the Police Department on August 15, 2020. Citizens have the opportunity to comment on these proposed items by contacting the department at:
