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 Hemet will use their Local JAG award to enhance and upgrade the Hemet Police Department's computer-based crime analysis system. Specifically, the JAG funds will be used to purchase crime analysis software and hardware that includes installation, training, and maintenance. The goal of this project is to enhance effectiveness in combating and reducing crime through the use of an integrated crime analysis system.
