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 St. Augustine will use the JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment for the St. Augustine Police Department. The department will procure 22 copies of Easy Street Draw for diagramming crime and accident scenes to scale, position marine grade wireless headsets, Military Grade Weapons Lockers, and traffic control equipment for controlling traffic and crowds. The goals and objectives of the project is to improve the delivery of services to the citizens and tourists of St. Augustine.
