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).

Lane County and the City of Eugene, will utilize the grant funds equally to enhance the efficiency and safety of law enforcement officers. Eugene Police Department will purchase ammunition under .5 caliber as well as radar units for motorcycle officers. The Lane County Sheriff’s Office will use JAG funds for tasers and related required accessories. Additionally, analytical services will be procured from the Public Safety Coordinating Council (PSCC), a regional advisory assembly, charged with ensuring effective use of resources to prevent crime and increase the sense of safety.
