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 city of Pomona, through the police department, will utilize the FY 2010 JAG funds to enhance their targeted gang-violence suppression efforts and community policing. The city of Pomona Police Department will focus on two law enforcement initiatives specifically focused on current crime and gang-violence incidents within community neighborhoods. The primary goal is to reduce gang-related and other neighborhood specific crimes through comprehensive, enhanced/specialized law enforcement deployments, and programs that are based on extensive intelligence gathering and analysis inclusive of input solicited directly from the community.
