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).

Madison County will use the JAG funds to fund the Madison County Sheriff's Office Smart Policing Project. Grant funds will be used to support the salary of an assigned officer to further meet and discuss criminal patterns and social disorder with public organizations, community leaders and groups. The officer will be equipped with and analyze evidentiary and collected data to include the documentation and dissemination of all activity reports and public contacts with community leaders and groups.
