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 New Hampshire Department of Justice
will use the FY 2010 JAG grant funds to support the established priorities previously identified by the state. These priorities include support for drug interdiction efforts in New Hampshire; investigation and prosecution of cyber related crimes; completion of a statewide integrated criminal justice information system, known as J-ONE; enhancement of related technology improvements; and support for statewide youth crime prevention programs. The goal of these efforts is to increase the efficiency of New Hampshire's service providers and to reduce instances of crime and victimization. Further, the New Hampshire Department of Justice, through this JAG strategy, is prepared to continue to focus on the operation of their statewide multi-jurisdictional drug task force.
