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).

Martin County, through its sheriff's office, will utilize Fiscal Year 2010 JAG funds to purchase equipment and enhance security. The Martin County Sheriff's Office will purchase a card access system to enhance the security of their evidence unit, a web-based radio frequency identification system to improve their ability to track and inventory evidence, a camera and call box to enhance security at a substation, and a universal forensic extraction device to retrieve data
from various devices.
