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 program 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 of Enid and county of Garfield will use FY 2013 JAG funds to support the Enid Police Department and the Garfield County Sheriff's Department. The Enid Police Department will purchase equipment and technology. The Garfield County Sheriff's Department will support their vehicle replacement program. These equipment and vehicle purchases will enable both the police department and the sheriff's department to provide improved law enforcement services to the community and to better manage the transport of prisoners and inmates. Collectively, these equipment purchases meet will serve to reduce area crime and violence.
