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 the city of Seymour and Jackson County will share this JAG award in the amount of $16,021. The city of Seymour, serving as the fiscal agent, will use $12,016 to purchase tactical night vision equipment for the Seymour Police Department to improve current methods of night surveillance. Jackson County will utilize $4,005 to purchase tactical surveillance equipment for the Jackson County Sheriff's Department. These purchases will provide law enforcement officers and detectives of the Seymour Police Department and Jackson County Sheriff's Department with state of the art equipment to facilitate improvement in the quality of their work.
