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 Guilford County and the cities of High Point and Greensboro will use the JAG award in the amount of $400,678 for law enforcement equipment. The city of High Point, serving as the fiscal agent, will use $101,754.80 to purchase in-car cameras and license plate readers. Guilford County will use $76,569.60 to purchase in-car cameras and a non-linear editing system to produce training videos and public information videos. The city of Greensboro will use $222,353.60 to purchase in-car printers for patrol cars. These technology and equipment upgrades will enhance patrol efficiency, investigation, and public safety throughout the county.
