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 Warren and the county of Trumbull will use their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $18,128 for law enforcement equipment. The city of Warren was selected as the fiscal agent for the JAG award and will disburse $4,078.80 to Trumbull County. Both jurisdictions will use funds to purchase taser kits for their officers. A total of 16 taser kits will be purchased. In addition, Warren will use 10 percent of the award for grant administration costs.
