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).

Ascension Parish, through the sheriff's office, will utilize the 2009 JAG funds to upgrade their photograph and video storage process. The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office will purchase bay expansion of disk storage, a server, software for video storage, and digital web viewer. The purchases will enhance the sheriff's office ability to secure storage and management of photographic and video evidence.
