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 Lincoln County and the city of North Platte will utilize the FY 2010 JAG award in the amount of $18,391 to support law enforcement initiatives. Grant funds will be used to send one North Platte Police Department Investigator and one Lincoln County Sheriff's Department Investigator to training on seizing digital evidence and three Internet Crimes Against Children trainings. These trainings will allow both investigators to participate in the Nebraska State Patrol Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Funding will also be use to purchase two workstations for the investigators. The city of North Platte will serve as the fiscal agent for this award.
