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 2016 Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) will be used for the Auto Theft Reduction and Recovery Program. The purchase of a new Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) unit will allow the police department to expand its ALPR unit capacity. The ALPR unit is designed for use in a vehicle, and the vehicle will be provided as a resource for other agencies in the area to be utilized during joint operations and to collect information for official law enforcement purposes.
