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 disparate jurisdictions will use the grant to support law enforcement initiatives. Specifically, funds will be used to improve network storage and purchase laptops; and purchase a new fuming chamber, shotgun slings and accessories, and monitoring bracelets for the protection of children with autism. The project goals are to enhance and advance law enforcement programs to effectively and efficiently provide for the safety and security of the residences within the County. NCA/NCF
