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 Auburn will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG funds in the amount of $16,429 to support the Auburn Police Department. The Auburn Police Department will use the funds for overtime, to purchase equipment, for training, and for the administrative costs associated with developing a strategic and development plan. This funding will help continue targeted neighborhood specific deployments to reduce violent crime and narcotics activities, provide the necessary resources to develop a viable evacuation plan and to conduct both tabletop and live training using the plan, and to purchase equipment needed to effectively facilitate an evacuation plan.
