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 Wheat Ridge will use the Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to purchase law enforcement equipment and technology upgrades for the city of Wheat Ridge Police Department. Specific purchases will include computer hardware and software, information technology upgrades, and other law enforcement related equipment. The project goals are to assist the department in its effort to enhance their technology improvement program. The grant funds will also be used for overtime to assist with their personnel costs for officers assigned to the community policing crime prevention program.
