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).

This JAG award will be used to purchase law enforcement equipment and supplies and provide training to Community Safety Officers. Funding will allow the officers to better serve the public with regards to a rapid increase in animal attacks. Field personnel will be able to document and access information regarding vicious animals, hostile pet owners, and recent attacks and/or bite reports. NCA/NCF
