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 Conroe will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $32,925 to implement their Patrol Bicycle Program by purchasing uniforms, eight bicycles, and accessories. The police department's goals are to organize a sixteen man bicycling unit, improve the visibility of police presence in the community, coordinate with other agencies, and increase the quality of life for the citizens of Conroe and visitors to Montgomery County.
