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 County of Macomb and the City of Warren have agreed to share their Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 JAG funds of $44,649 for crime prevention and control activities. The County of Macomb plans to use $14,494 to support the Department of Community Corrections' Dual Diagnosis program. The program is designed for non-violent offenders with both substance abuse issues and mental illness. The City of Warren plans to use their $30,155 to purchase computers that will be utilized to organize, analyze, and statistically coordinate information for several new community programs being implemented including the Citizens Police Academy, Kids CSI Club, Bike Helmet Give-away, and Law Enforcement Against Drugs (LEAD) Program that will provide drug testing kits for parents.
