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 recipient will utilize the FY 16 JAG award to purchase Electrical Conductive Weapons (ECW) in order to maintain operational efficiency when dealing with police encounters involving a response to aggression. Funds will also be utilized for items involved in the security of the devices (holsters), operation (batteries) of the ECW devices, and replacement cartridges. NCA/NCF
