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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of Junction City and Geary County will use the FY 2009 Local JAG award ($26,230) to provide software training and purchase weather presentation and communication equipment and computer software. The Junction City Police Department, serving as the fiscal agent, will purchase and install an audiovisual switcher, two projectors, and two presentation screens. In addition, the Junction City Police Department will use their funding to send personnel to ArcGIS Desktop Foundational software training and pay for lodging, meals, and mileage. The training will consist of three modules for a total of eight days of training. The Geary County Sheriffs Office will purchase new computer equipment.
