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 Oregon Criminal Justice Commission (CJC) will use their Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to support multi-jurisdictional drug task forces that involve both law enforcement agencies and prosecutors; enhance interagency coordination, intelligence sharing, investigation, and interdiction; and support prisoner re-entry programs which are operational in four Oregon counties and for which these 2010 JAG funds will provide one additional year of operating costs until March 2012.
