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 Bryan, serving as the fiscal agent, will utilize the FY 2016 JAG Award to purchase a portable alarm system, patrol bicycle, weapon mounted lights, covert cameras and associated equipment. The City of College Station will use funds for stop sticks and rear pillar lights for patrol SUVs. The Brazos County Sheriff's Office will use its portion of funds to purchase a QUAD Crisis response module and body worn cameras. The project goals are to increase essential law enforcement services.
