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 Winter Park will use the JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment for the city of Winter Park Police Department. Specifically, grant funds will be used to procure a training munitions system and coordinated protective gear. The Winter Park Police Department will have the capability to conduct realistic deadly force training scenarios of all conceivable types. Protective gear will also be purchased with the system to provide each officer the required protection to interact safely. All of the components and munitions will be integrated with the police department's current weapons systems.
