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 of Santa Fe County and the city of Santa Fe will use their JAG award in the amount of $75,581 to support equipment purchases. Santa Fe County, serving as the fiscal agent, will use $27,428 to purchase tasers to replace an aging inventory for the Santa Fe County Sheriff's office. The city of Santa Fe will purchase a Rapid Deployment Vehicle to transport SWAT team members of the Santa Fe Police Department.
