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 Rosebud Sioux Tribe will use the FY 2013 JAG funds to provide the tribal court with equipment that will improve the productivity and efficiency of the court. The Rosebud Sioux Tribal Court system will upgrade technology equipment to allow acceptable information sharing as well as information protection. NCA/NCF
