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).

Roanoke County will utilize the JAG funds to purchase law enforcement equipment, supplies, and travel for training. Specific purchases include a fire alarm system, printers, laptops, computers, supplies, and staffer training. These purchases will help fund the Commonwealth Attorney's Office Victim/Witness Program operating expenses.
