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 Fort Myers will expend the Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 JAG funds on laptop computers, software, and travel expenses. The laptop computers and software will be purchased for patrol officers, community policing officers, and the juvenile arrest and monitoring unit for use during daily patrols and special investigations. The travel expenses are for the Fort Myers Police Department Explorers to attend statewide competitions and trainings.
