The JAG Program (42 U.S.C. 3751(a) et seq.) is the primary provider of federal criminal justice funding to state, local, and tribal jurisdictions, and JAG funds support all components of the criminal justice system.

They will develop and maintain the training curricula and all related materials to include presentations, handouts, practical exercises, and online (distance) learning tools.

They will participate in planned activities to develop new training curricula, at a minimum, for GRA and GFIPM training modules, and will be directly responsible for pilot testing the new materials with the field. IJIS will provide a comprehensive JIS training curriculum consisting of several modules, each of which will be delivered on-demand as needed to requesting jurisdictions and on a periodic, rotating basis across the country.
