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 the 2012 JAG funds to support officer overtime and purchase computer equipment for smart policing programs and strategies associated with real-time crime tracking and assessment, and drug enforcement and education. The program goals are to enhance existing law enforcement and community policing efforts; and, reduce crime, safeguard public safety, and improve quality of life in the jurisdiction.
