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 Mandan and Morton County will utilize this JAG award in the amount of $14,254 to update and replace equipment and uniforms. The city of Mandan, serving as the fiscal agent, will use $12,829 for the purchase of digital cameras, a digital meeting projector to give public presentations and in-service training, a body opponent bag (training dummy) to train in a variety of less than lethal techniques, radar guns, boots to provide staff with quality footwear that will be worn in all four seasons, two new headlights for bike patrol, raincoats for investigators, and investigative supplies including a canopy for outdoor crime scenes, an alternate light source, a recording device, and the basic resupplying of investigative supplies. Morton County will use S1,425 to purchase body bags, a handheld metal detector, and kitchen supplies for the jail.
