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 North Miami will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 JAG award in the amount of $22,084 to purchase hardware, software and IT support services that will be distributed throughout all units of the police department. The purchase will include laptops and necessary software. Over the four-year period, the grant funds will enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of investigations, traffic enforcement, training, and emergency response.
