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 Red Bluff will use the JAG funds to supplement the Red Bluff Police Department's general overtime budget and training-related overtime costs. Due to budget cuts, much of the mandatory training had to be postponed. This training includes use of firearms, impact weapons, weaponless defense and other perishable skills training required by state law. This training will help save lives, enhance officer skills, and assist the agency retain its current level of officer positions.
