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 Ogden and Weber County will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $31,375 for law enforcement purposes. The Weber County Sheriff's Office and the Ogden Police Department agree to use $4,000 in JAG funds to contribute to Roy City in Weber County for the continued effort in reducing juvenile truancy and underage drinking. Roy City has 200 high school age students who are not attending school due to their expulsion, another placement, or by choice. Roy City will use the funds to pay for patrols of parks and other public areas in an effort to reduce truancy and underage alcohol use and enforce the daytime curfew. The Weber County Corrections and Patrol Joint Special Weapons and Tactics Team will use $10,950 for overtime, training, equipment, and basic operating expenses. The Ogden Police Department will use $16,425 to continue to fund a crime reduction program using overtime patrols in the central city and downtown business district areas of Ogden City to suppress gang, drug, and targeted criminal activity.
