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 Coolidge will use the 2009 local JAG funds to support the Coolidge Police Department. Funds will be used to purchase a portable drug incinerator and 14 rifles for patrol officer use. The city's goal is to improve patrol officer safety and the disposal of confiscated narcotics. Coolidge police will work with local vendors and coordinate with city financial services personnel for all necessary financial tracking and reporting.
