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 use funds to purchase equipment and technology to support critical units within the agency departments. The technology purchases will include hardware and software for photo storage, additional computer hardware to replace obsolete units, software to improve communication during emergency operations, and technology to support the new Inspections of Public Records Act (IPRA) Unit. The grantee equipment purchases will include furniture for the new IPRA unit, and two dispatch consoles.
