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 Anderson will use the JAG Local funds ($25,902) to support the law enforcement efforts of the Anderson Police Department. The Anderson Police Department will use the funds for a program entitled "Overtime Funding for the Operation of the Street Level Criminal Apprehension Program." The purpose of this program is to improve the quality of life of the citizens in and around the city of Anderson by using overtime to facilitate additional pro-active arrests, convictions, and incarcerated offenders, which will remove perpetrators of crime from the Anderson community and enhance safety.
