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 Cheyenne Police Department will use their FY 2013 JAG funds to purchase a use-of-force Simulator system. The system comes with pre-loaded but adaptable scenarios, and the ability to create custom scenarios with included programming. Laramie County Sheriff's Department will use their FY 2013 JAG funds to purchase Body Worn cameras with video and still photo capability with high resolution and night vision capability to record field contacts.
