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 disparate jurisdictions of the City of Asbury Park and the County of Monmouth will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $17,285 to purchase law enforcement equipment. The City of Asbury Park will use the funding to purchase video surveillance equipment that will be used to monitor high crime areas of the city. The 2008 JAG funding will provide the City of Asbury Park the opportunity to initiate and build a video surveillance system that can be enhanced and added to in the future.
