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 Town of Cutler Bay will utilize the JAG funds to enhance their communication with neighboring municipalities and other government entities. Funds will be used to purchase rugged laptops to facilitate interconnection of radio signals; radios to ensure communication during emergency; and
VOIP Interoperability equipment to facilitate connection of various radio signals. NCA/NCF
