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 disparate jurisdictions of the city of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma County, Del City, and Midwest City, OK will use their 2016 JAG funds to support law enforcement initiatives. Funds will be used to purchase necessary equipment and fund personnel costs. Some of the equipment to be purchased includes Body-Worn Cameras, Mobile Data Vehicle Modems and Data Servers, Audio/Video Recording System, and Tasers. The overall goal of the program is to enhance officer and public safety.
