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 Rogers will use the grant to purchase a Forensic Recovery of Evidence Device (FRED) system for the Rogers Police Department. FRED system will allow the department to conduct proper forensic analysis of the evidence seized during child pornography, computer exploitation of child, computer fraud, computer trespassing, and other crimes involving a computer.
