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 Sanford will use their 2016 JAG funds to purchase an Automatic License Plate Reader, Computer Voice Stress Analysis work stations, and Rifle Mounted Lights. The primary goal of this project will be to enhance public safety throughout the agency's jurisdiction by ensuring officers are provided state of the art policing equipment. NCA/NCF
