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).

Miami-Dade will use this JAG award to enhance police operations through technology and equipment upgrades. Specific purchases will include: a high definition digital/audio video recording system with soundproofing; pole cameras; fleet gun rack mounts; a Volicon System; RTCC software and hardware telecommunications equipment. The project goal is to enhance public and officer safety.
