The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states, tribes, and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own 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 for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The City of Dover will use its 2008 JAG award ($13,014) to enable the Dover Police Department to upgrade and enhance in-car digital recording devices and speed enforcement equipment in its patrol cruisers. The decision by the City to use the 2008 JAG funds in this way reflects a commitment to ensuring the health, safety and protection of the pedestrians and motorists of Dover.
