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 Delaware Criminal Justice Council will use their 2013 JAG funds to continue addressing the following priorities: violence and shootings statewide and in the City of Wilmington (hot spot overtime), specialized courts (drug court and mental health court), sex offender management (verification and notification), gang enforcement, and technology advances for the courts, law enforcement, and the criminal justice system overall. Funding will also be used to provide staffing and supplies, maintain and update the bench book and staffing meetings, and support the Statistical Analysis Center in its mission of maintaining and gathering data for the improvement of the criminal justice system.
