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 San Benito County and the city of Hollister will share this FY 2010 JAG award in the amount of $18,008. The Hollister Police Department will purchase hand-held and mobile radios to help standardize equipment for their patrol officers, and provide for compliance with future narrow-band radio requirements. The goal of this project is to appropriate equipment necessary for the provision of service by the Hollister Police Department
