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 North Miami will use the JAG funds to purchase a broad range of equipment and information technology software and hardware to assist in the prevention and control of crime. The equipment to be purchased will increase the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the city police department as it continues its commitment to the safety of the community. The goal is to procure equipment and items that will assist the police department to prevent and solve crimes through information technology.
