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 town of Milford will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $10,127 to assist with equipment upgrades within the Milford Public Safety Communications Center. The Milford Police Department is relocating and upgrading the center and will use funds to support installation of wiring, cable, and electrical outlets as well as the purchase of an operator console, headset jack, and a console protection module for operator interface. The upgrades to the center are of utmost importance as all dispatch and communications are centralized at this location and provided to police, fire, Emergency Medical Services, and the Milford Regional Medical Center.
