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 City of Santa Rosa Police Department plans to allocate the FY 2012 JAG funds towards the following: (1) a Firearms Training Simulator (FATS) to meet mandated training requirements and to maintain sworn personnel's skill levels with firearms; (2) a video forensics recovery system that will resolve most of the quality and surveillance equipment issues; and (3) field evidence camera, external flash devices, cameras for patrol officers to carry in their cars, tasers and holsters, and a printer to produce color maps and diagrams.
