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 Hopewell, through the police department, will utilize the FY 2010 JAG funds to sustain their community policing/problem oriented policing initiatives. Grant funds will be used to support patrol overtime and purchase technology items that enhance the department's current patrol functions to include mobile computers, tasers, taser cartridges, ammunition for service weapons, and funding for community literature, magnets, banner displays, and table throws.
