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 grantee will use awarded JAG funds to purchase equipment that will enhance traffic safety and provide additional resources for police investigations. Specifically, the grantee will purchase technology to provide for a second interview room, a data switcher and updated router, a social media monitoring package, a universal forensic extraction device, and an evidence collection tool camera kit.
