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 Inglewood has partnered with the Inglewood Police Department to create a part-time civilian investigator position to handle non-hazardous investigations and duties that are traditionally performed by detectives. The information and support provided by the Detective Bureau's civilian investigator will allow officers and detectives to work more closely with individuals, businesses, community and civic organizations, as well as city departments and outside agencies.
