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).

Riverside County will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $74,194 to support personnel positions for the Fugitive Warrant Extradition Team, which is part of the Riverside County Sheriff Department's Homeland Security Team, known as the Special Enforcement Bureau. A portion of the funds will be provided to the District Attorney's Office for prosecution of fugitives on whom outstanding warrants are served.
