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 Medford Police Department and the Jackson County Sheriff's Department will use their FY 2011 JAG funds for the acquisition and implementation of Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) systems by both departments. The Medford Police Department and the Jackson County Sheriff's Department will work jointly to share information that will be used by both department systems in an effort to locate stolen vehicles, criminal suspects, missing persons and vehicles associated with various other cases.
