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 county of Park will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $13,583 to support the Park County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's office will use the funds to purchase necessary upgraded equipment for patrol vehicles, such as two-way radios, radar units, and in-car video camera systems. This equipment will allow the sheriff's office to safely, effectively, and efficiently protect and serve the citizens of Park County.
