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 consisiting of the city of Stockton and San Joaquin County will share the FY 2010 JAG award in the amount of $580,447, with the city serving as the fiscal agent. Grant funds will be used to enhance public safety through intervention, prevention, drug treatment and education programs for at-risk youth; vigorous enforcement of probation terms; and the prosecution of gang-related offenses and juvenile firearms crimes.
