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 the city of Seymour ($16,548) and Jackson County ($2,758) will use their FY 2009 Local JAG funds to purchase equipment. The city of Seymour, serving as the fiscal agent, will purchase six Motorola mobile units for their police patrol cars. Jackson County will purchase one Motorola mobile unit for one Sheriff's Deparment patrol car. The additional funds will be applied to the Seymour Police Department asset forfeiture account.
