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 the city Appleton and county of Outagamie will share this Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award. The city of Appleton, serving as the fiscal agent, will use its share of this award to purchase specialized equipment to support Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), secure patrol equipment assets, and support monitoring Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) screens for the Appleton Police Department.
Outagamie County will allocate its share of this award to the Sheriff's Department to support a comprehensive Abatement Program. The Sheriff's Department will use the funding to purchase wearable audio-video cameras. These cameras will allow County officers to obtain valuable and useful evidence in the abatement process.
