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 Corona will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award to purchase equipment and fund training for the Defensive Tactics Division of the Corona Police Department. The Defensive Tactics Team will provide all in-service training for use of force, including electronic control device usage, baton proficiency certification, and other defensive tactics. The JAG funds will also be used to purchase defensive tactics aids such as practice baton protective training suits, training vests, firearm training replicas, less than lethal training devices, and street survival seminars.
