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 city of Plano, city of McKinney, city of Frisco, and Collin County have been designated as disparate jurisdictions to share the FY 2010 Bureau of Justice Assistance JAG award. The city of Plano will serve as the fiscal agent for the award and use their portion of grant funds to purchase security cameras for the perimeter of the police headquarters facility, adjacent external public, and law enforcement parking lots. The city of McKinney will use their share of the grant funds to purchase law enforcement equipment to enhance the Police Department's ability to detect and deter crime. Grant funds will be used to purchase a drug terminator, lidar hand-held laser radar, rifle grade shield, and segway. The city of Frisco will use their share of grant funds to send supervisory-ranked Officers to the Leadership in Police Organizations (LPO) Train the Trainer Program offered by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). The Collin County Sheriff's Office will use funds to purchase laptop computers, hardware, and software for Criminal Investigators.
