The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local government, 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 Clark County and the city of Springfield will utilize the FY 2010 JAG award in the amount of $64,480 to support law enforcement initiatives. The city of Springfield, serving as the fiscal agent, will use funds to purchase a video enhancement system for review of video evidence, a subscription to the LexisNexis online search engine, upgrades to the covert wire system, and other surveillance and field equipment. Clark County will use grant funds to purchase new mobile and portable radios for the Clark County Sheriff's Office. The project goals are to upgrade communication and technology equipment, as well an increase essential police services throughout the county.
