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 Titusville Police Department (PD) will use its Fiscal Year 2008 JAG grant funds of $11,671.00 to pay overtime to support selective traffic enforcement and career criminal/sexual offender follow-up initiatives. Overtime funding for the selective traffic enforcement initiative will allow the department to provide traffic awareness to the citizens. Funding will also allow the Titusville Police Department to follow-up on career criminals and sex offenders, reducing repeat offenders and ensuring compliance with court orders.
