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 Chickasha and Grady County will use the JAG award in the amount of $18,897 for crime reduction and criminal prosecution initiatives. Both agencies plan on purchasing equipment that will enhance and aid in the reduction of crime and help with prosecution. The city of Chickasha, acting as the fiscal agent, will use $13,228 to purchase a metal detector, moving target system, video camcorder, and SIM card reader. Grady County will use $5,669 to purchase radar detectors and taser cartridges.
