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).

Sublette County will use their FY 2010 funds to bring domestic violence education to Sublette County. They will do this in conjunction with SAFV (Sexual Assault and Family Violence) Task Force. The majority of the funding will be used to bring a speaker to Sublette County to address domestic violence, the dangers and symptoms in an effort to educate their small rural community. The remaining funds will be used to compliment the program by purchasing literature to give to local agencies, schools and community members to continue domestic violence education and prevention.
