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 grantee will utilize the FY 13 JAG to support the police department and the attorney's office. This grant will enable police senior staff to attend the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference and attorneys to attend the Virginia Annual Commonwealth's Attorney's Conference. Officers will acquire electronic control devices with accessories and attorneys will purchase new code books (and CDs) and subscriptions to law related databases.
