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 Santa Fe and Santa Fe County are listed as disparate jurisdictions under the FY 2013 Local JAG allocation. Each jurisdiction will utilize the JAG award to purchase general law enforcement equipment and supplies, which will enhance officers' safety and law enforcement activities. The following types of equipment will include: a wireless microphone, micro digital video cameras, pocket jet printers, digital cameras, and radar units.
