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 Gainesville will use the JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment and technology enhancements for the Gainesville Police Department. Grant funds will be used to support the Operations Bureau through the procurement of items that will directly benefit the law enforcement officers. Specific purchases will include printers and printer seat carriers for patrol vehicles, digital in-car cameras, GPS trackers for use in special investigations, 3SI money tracking packets for the Criminal Investigations Bureau, and videos for recruitment and community education for the Community Services Bureau and Professional Standards Bureau.
