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 Lynwood intends to utilize their fiscal year 2008 JAG grant funds to continue the 'We're Watching You' Program which will assist the city in providing a better quality of life and a safer community for the families and businesses in Lynwood. Specifically, the city will purchase one surveillance camera to provide surveillance of an area where high criminal activity exists.
