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 Morris County and the towns of Morristown and Dover will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $29,548 to purchase equipment. The town of Morristown, serving as the fiscal agent, will use its share of grant funds towards the acquisition of a 2009 Dodge Charger marked patrol vehicle for the Morristown Police Department. The Dover Police Department will use their funds to purchase a message board traffic control system.
