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 Outagamie County and the city of Appleton will use their Fiscal Year 2008 Local JAG funds to continue their public safety efforts. The fiscal agent, the city of Appleton, will use $6,179 to purchase property and evidence management barcoding equipment in order to more efficiently track, search for, and maintain the custody of evidence. Outagamie County will use $5,000 to purchase tasers for use in prisoner transports and arrests.
