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 use funds to initiate a Public Safety Vehicle Tracking System and Crime Prevention Promotion Program. Global Positioning Systems will be added to patrol cruisers, officers will participate in Neighborhood Watch programs, and prepare crime prevention videos. The goals are to increase response time, assist officers with locating unknown locations, and to proactively get involved in the community. NCA/NCF
