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 Wilson and Wilson County have been certified disparate and have agreed to share the aggregate of funds allocated to them through the FY 2014 JAG Program. The city of Wilson will use their share of the JAG funds to purchase in-car digital video cameras for the police department and Wilson County will use their funds to purchase radar systems to combat speed induced accidents throughout the county. Both agencies have agreed for the city of Wilson to receive the JAG funds and procure the requested equipment for both jurisdictions, in accordance with the signed MOU. NCA/NCF
