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 Pike County, and the city of McComb will share this Fiscal Year 2010 JAG Local award in the amount of $12,557. In a disparate situation, the units of local government must apply for an award with a single, joint application.

The funds from this award will be used to enhance officer safety and improve the efficiency of the McComb Police Department and Pike County Sheriff's Deparment. Pike County, acting as the fiscal agent, will purchase portable intoxilyzers, Stinger Spike Systems, and traffic cones. The McComb Police Department will puchase dual antenna vehicle radar units, two 73GB CPU Hard Drives, and ballistic vest tactical carriers.
