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 utilize the grant to support law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to purchase tactical equipment for the Emergency Services Unit (EMU) and supplies to increase the technological capabilities of the Emergency Operations Center (EOD). The project goals are to enhance the capacity of the City of Stamford to address emergency management issues and enhance the capacity of the EMU to address high risk critical incidents.
