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 Doral will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $14,623 to help support the Seat Belt Safety Program of the Doral Police Department. The police department plans on purchasing a Seat Belt Convincer and seat belt safety literature. They plan to conduct various demonstrations with the Convincer throughout the city. The city of Doral hopes to provide the community with more awareness of wearing seat belts, thus increasing their use.
