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).

Lake County will use its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award to support the Lake County Sheriff's Office Dispatch Center, Detective Division, and County Jail. Funds will be used to purchase new computer monitors, ergonomic chairs, and headsets for the Dispatch Division; a video camera and crime scene kits for the Detective Division; and new computers for the Lake County Jail. JAG funds will assist Lake County in stabilizing its local budget as well as operating more efficiently and effectively.
