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).
Laramie County Sheriff's office and Cheyenne Police Department will utilize their 2012 JAG funds to install a license plate reader in one of their patrol vehicles. Digital video recorders will also be purchased for some police cars to enhance community policing effectiveness. The Laramie County detention facility will also receive new no-time locks and secure key card entry. NCA/NCF
