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 Visalia will utilize the FY 2013 Local JAG funds to support criminal justice initiatives. Specifically, the Visalia Police Department will send police staff to a three-week Senior Management Institute for Police program in Boston, Massachusetts, purchase a throw phone for crisis negotiations, and purchase a back-up 911 Communications Recording System.
