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 and County of Honolulu will utilize the FY 2012 JAG funds to support various projects - eight from the Honolulu Police Department and one from the Prosecuting Attorney. Project strategies include but are not limited to: (1) contract hiring for the jail diversion mental health program; (2) equipment purchases to enhance K-9 and community policing operations; (3) criminal surveillance, investigation, and operations; (4) community outreach, at-risk youth mentoring, and public education; and (5) enhancement of the case management system for prosecution of cases.
