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 county of Brunswick will utilize its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award to support its Aviation Unit Enhancement Project. The county's goal is to obtain a hangar facility to provide protection and preserve the sheriff's department aircraft. The Brunswick County Sheriff's Department will work closely with local airport authorities to obtain and maintain an appropriate hangar facility. The rent for the facility is $19,200 for four years. The city will use a combination of JAG funding and local dollars to purchase a portable aircraft wheels to allow for aircraft relocation as needed.
