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 the city of Jamestown and Stutsman County will share this JAG award in the amount of $14,100 to improve their safety equipment capabilities to achieve better quality investigations, improve our technology capability and officer safety. The city of Jamestown, serving as the fiscal agent, will use $12,000 to equip squad cars with in car video systems; purchase armored vests, luminary equipment, a radar unit, and tasers; and supplement investigation equipment and supplies to include a fingerprint kit and other supplies for investigators.
