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 support upgrades to police vehicles. Specific upgrades will include a new set-up for new mobile radios, laptops, mobile printers, as well as other items such as license plate recognition systems and flashlights. These necessary upgrades will make vehicles safer, more effective, more comfortable, and less harmful for officer use within the Department. NCA/NCF
