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 grantee will use the grant to purchase equipment necessary for enforcement of traffic laws to reduce traffic accidents and equipment necessary for the arrest and prosecution of drunk drivers in order to reduce DUI violations. The grant will also enable the grantee to purchase equipment that will be used to train their officers in self-defense tactics to reduce officer and suspect injury.
