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 Vista will use the FY 2014 JAG funds to conduct Jr. Deputy Academies. The academy is a 10-week character building program for youth. The Vista Police Department will purchase minor equipment for the Jr. Deputy Academy. The balance of funds will be used for training opportunities outside the police department which will enable officers to become subject matter experts. NCA/NCF
