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 West Jordan will use the Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to purchase law enforcement equipment for the West Jordan Police Department. Specific purchases will include computer hardware and software, audio and video equipment and other law enforcement related equipment. The project goals are to assist the department in improving officer safety and to be proactive in their analysis of criminals and criminal activities.
