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 County of Sonoma will utilize the 2014 JAG award to fund the Law Office of the Public Defender's 'Mobile Computer and Scanning Improvement Program'. The Public Defender's Office and the District Attorney's Office are in the process of implementing a new legal case management system. Specifically, funds will be used to acquire mobile computers, scanners, and digital cameras for use within the legal case management and electronic document management systems. NCA/NCF
