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 recipient will utilize grant funds to purchase cameras, wireless nodes, air cards and recording equipment. This equipment will be deployed in high crime areas that have been prone to repeated illegal gang activity and violence and is intended to reduce the incidence of crime and capture video evidence of any illegal activity within the vicinity of the vehicle.
