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 Houston County and the city of Dothan will share the FY 2010 JAG award. The city of Dothan, serving as the fiscal agent, submitted a joint application. The JAG funds will be used for activities and projects that will provide meaningful and measurable outcomes consistent with the goals of the JAG Program. Houston County and the city of Dothan will utilize the funds to purchase digital video in-car cameras and mobile data terminals.
