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 Brown County and the city of Green Bay will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $107,950 to support the needs of the local law enforcement agencies. The funds will be used to provide equipment and software for the Green Bay Police Department and Brown County Sheriff's Department. The Green Bay Police Department and Brown County Sheriff's Department will use this equipment and software to offer officers more resources to assist them in crime prevention, crime solving, officer safety and public safety. The equipment and software will allow officers to maximize their abilities and enhance safety for the people of the city of Green Bay and Brown County.
