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 Coral Gables will use this Fiscal Year 2010 JAG award to fund the Coral Gables Police Department's Project Return Program. The Police Department will purchase personal locator units to be provided to Coral Gables residents who are at risk of wandering. The LoJack SafetyNet is a search and rescue system used for anyone with a medical condition such as Alzheimers or autism that may cause him or her to wander or become lost.
