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).

Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office will use their 2015 JAG funds to purchase updated computer equipment for training. Updated technology will replace current outdated and obsolete equipment used to train new and existing deputies in various law enforcement areas. The Idaho Falls Police Department would like to use their funds to purchase updated less than lethal devices(TASER)and update their current body-worn cameras.
