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 Wisconsin Department of Justice will utilize their FY 2013 JAG award to fund multi-jurisdictional drug enforcement task forces; community-based treatment and court programs; diversion programs; technology improvement programs for local law enforcement; State justice systems improvement programs; the Wisconsin Statistical Analysis Center UCR/IBR program; and funding to allow for response to criminal justice needs and emergencies. The Office's mission is to build safer communities by providing support for state and local government agencies, non-profit programs and communities, conducting meaningful justice system planning, sharing data and information, and developing appropriate linkages to justice system programming in order to have a positive, long-term impact on Wisconsin's justice system while promoting the safety of its citizens.
