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 Compton will utilize the FY 2014 JAG award to conduct the following: 1) deter crime and gang activity; 2) hire a graffiti removal contractor to remove graffiti throughout the city; 3) create and distribute community outreach flyers; and 4) cover program administration costs. The goals are to deter and reduce criminal activity by conducting special law enforcement strategies and removing graffiti throughout the city to promote a sense of pride in the community and create a safer environment.
