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 Bowling Green and Warren County will use JAG funds to support criminal justice initiatives the Bowling Green Police Department will purchase equipment and supplies and the Warren County Prosecutor's Office will subsidize salary of a prosecutor who will oversee the prosecution of all DUI cases in the Warren County. The Bowling Green Police Department will serve as the fiscal agent managing the JAG award. The goals are to enhance both agency’s ability to increase officer and public safety.
