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).

Indian River County will use the JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment for the Indian River Sheriff's Office. The Indian River County Sheriff's Office will procure digital forensic equipment and one Aviation Helmet. The aviation helmet will be used by the Aviation Unit and the digital forensic equipment will allow a Forensic Computer Specialist the ability to analyze computers for evidence.
