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 Tuskegee and Macon County have been certified disparate and must enter into a Memorandum of Understanding for the aggregate of funds allocated under the FY 2010 JAG program. The city of Tuskegee will use JAG funds to purchase a patrol vehicle, to increase the visibility of its patrol officers in the community. The grantee is required to submit a modified Program and Budget Narrative when the joing agreement is finalized.
