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).

Rock County and the cities of Beloit and Janesville will use FY 2010 JAG funds to enhance law enforcement operations. Specific grant funded activities will include the purchase of Tasers, crime analysis software and hardware, patrol bicycles, and flashlights. The salary of a crime analyst will also be supported. For grant administration purposes, the county will serve as the fiscal agent for this award.
