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 disparate jurisdictions consisting of the City of Utica and Oneida County will use the FY 2011 JAG funds to further law enforcement initiatives to support the sharing of vital information and offender accountability. The grant funds will be used to support the increase of the supervision of offenders sentenced to electronic monitoring as an alternative to incarceration. Furthermore, the grant funds will be used for purchase of equipment and to support overtime expenses incurred by the Utica Police Department for various community policing initiatives.
