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 Boynton Beach will use JAG award to fund the Boynton Beach Police Department overtime and equipment. The overtime will be used for a holiday deployment to ensure police presence during the holiday shopping season. Additionally, the Boynton Beach Police Department will purchase Panasonic Toughbook computers to assist law enforcement officers to conduct their everyday duties such as report writing, maps, calls of service, and conduct histories on persons.
