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 Department of the Prosecuting Attorney of the County of Maui, proposes to use the FY 2014 grant funds to purchase desktop computers with upgraded software. The new high-capacity built computers will have the capability to meet new computer system standards, set forth by the Hawaii State Criminal Justice Information Data System, the Hawaii Court Systems, and the federal court systems to integrate criminal data efficiently from local county law enforcement agencies, and prosecutor offices throughout the state of Hawaii.
