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 Citrus Heights Police Department will utilize the FY 2014 JAG award to purchase an enclosed trailer to serve as a portable negotiations center in the field during critical incidents. The trailer will be outfitted with shelving units to securely store major electronics and communications equipment, tabletops for tracking and diagraming progress of incidents, and electrical abilities to provide electronic capabilities for communications and incident monitoring. The funds will also be utilized to purchase communication technology and supplies, to allow emergency personnel to communicate within a secure confidential environment and operate more effectively in the field during major incidents.
