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).

Mohave County will use the 2009 local JAG funds to support technological advances for the Mohave County Sheriff's Office. Funds will be used to purchase and install police radio equipment throughout Mohave County. The county's goal is to improve law enforcement communications. Mohave County Sheriff's Office will work with selected service providers to perform upgrades and coordinate with county financial services personnel for all necessary financial tracking and reporting.
