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 county of Wake and city of Raleigh have been identified as disparate and will share this Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award in the amount of $304,541. The county of Wake, serving as the fiscal agent, submitted a joint application. The jurisdictions will utilize JAG funds to enhance officer safety, increase productivity, and promote strategies to reduce crime. The city of Raleigh will use their portion of the funds to pay overtime for officers to identify crime problems. The county of Wake will use their portion of the funds to upgrade their criminal justice data integration system.
