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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Brazos County and the cities of Bryan and College Station will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award to reduce, control, and mitigate crime and the effects of crime on their community and improve law enforcement service delivery. The city of Bryan, serving as fiscal agent, will use their share of the grant to purchase a video surveillance network system. The city of College Station will use their share of the grant to purchase laptops, software, audio/video equipment, and handheld thermal imaging units. The county of Brazos will use their portion of the grant to purchase laboratory evidence processing equipment.
