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 comprising of the cities of Anniston and Oxford and Calhoun County will share the 2009 local JAG award. The city of Anniston will use their share of the grant to replace most of the laptop computers located throughout the police department headquarters building. The city will also purchase several printers and video mics to be used by the uniform division personnel. Calhoun County will use their share to purchase five digital in-car video cameras, laptop computers, a projector, and a taser for use by sheriff's deputies. The city of Oxford will use their share to purchase 29 micro digital video/audio recorders, two digital camcorders, two digital cameras, and two covert cameras for use by their police officers and investigators.
