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 Alexandria will support the Alexandria Police Department to strategically deploy a task force of police officers to interrupt and resolve emerging Part I Crimes in the city. The officers will provide surveillance and investigative methods to reduce auto thefts, robbery and burglary crimes. Additionally, funds will be used for overtime to allow officers to attend local training opportunities aimed at reducing Part I Crimes.
