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 Lawrence will use the FY 2010 JAG funds to support the Lawrence Police Department with the JAG Targeted Patrol Program. The grant funds will be used for unexpected incident overtime, targeted patrols, and problem solving assignments in hot spots throughout the city of Lawrence as dictated by crime analysis data provided by the Crime/Disorder Unit of the police department.
