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 their funds to purchase rifles and accessories for the Patrol Rifle Program. The goals of the program are to: provide more officers the option of a greater stand off distance, enhance the effective range during potential deadly force encounters, and provide officers a weapons system to meet or exceed the capabilities of an advisoriesÂ’ weapon.
