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 Redding will utilize the full FY 2014 JAG allocation to help support the Redding Police Department's (RPD) share of costs for the Integrated Public Safety System (IPSS), which includes all law enforcement agencies in Shasta County. JAG funds have been used to supplement RPD's share of IPSS costs for several years. These funds will continue to enhance the police department's ability to share information and improve public safety communications county-wide. NCA/NCF
