The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local governments, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and 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, including 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 and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The city of Monroe will upgrade their current technology by purchasing two digital in-car video cameras, five laptop computers, five new service weapons, two radar speed measuring devices, two portable breath testers, five holsters for handguns, and five flashlights. These technology upgrades and police equipment purchases will allow law enforcement officers in the Monroe Police Department to be more effective and efficient in providing public safety.
