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.

The grantee will sue the JAG award towards the following: training for Municipal Court Judges and staff, centering on evidence-based practices in court management and case resolution; the Police Volunteer Program in support of community policing and the development of a community mediation program in conjunction with the University of Oregon Law School; and the purchase of moving radar units for several patrol vehicles in furtherance of community safety on state and local roads in Springfield. Grant funds will be expended for equipment, supplies, and training fees.
