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 Plant City will use fiscal year 2010 JAG funds in the amount of $27,517 to upgrade police communications. The Plant City Police Department will acquire twenty radios with included belt clips, batteries, and chargers to meet FCC regulations that require all radios be narrowband compliant by January 1, 2013. The department will also purchase twenty noise-cancelling shoulder microphones, twenty-eight in-car display radios to replace older models, twenty-eight antenna kits, and service/labor to remove the existing communication equipment.
