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 and County of Lubbock plan to utilize the FY 2014 JAG funds to purchase equipment and a police command vehicle. The goals of this project are to provide law enforcement services to the citizens of Lubbock through the acquisition of new technology equipment by the Lubbock Police Department and through the continued upgrade of the technology, communication, and law enforcement capacity of the Lubbock County District Attorney's Office and Sheriff's Office.
