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 Beaverton will use its Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $11,868 to purchase professional standards and internal investigation software packages for the Beaverton Police Department. The software will enhance the ability of police department to effectively manage employee and performance related issues. The anticipate outcomes of the software include: identifying potential problems early, so that proactive action can be taken; efficiently handling citizen complaints, administrative investigations, use-of-force reporting, and other types of incidents, while providing the means to analyze and identify areas of concern; providing automatic reminders for investigators and supervisors to ensure that necessary casework is completed in a timely manner; and having the capability to develop reports, form letters, and graphs.
