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 Michigan Department of State Police will use the FY 2014 JAG grant to support the following priority areas: multi-jurisdictional task forces; data-driven approaches to crime and traffic safety; priority population drug courts; high-crime cities prosecution efforts; drug threat assessment development; juvenile-focused community policing; and school safety. Overall project goals include reducing criminal activity and recidivism throughout the state of Michigan. NCA/NCF
