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 Daytona Beach will use their 2016 JAG funds to support the salaries of a program coordinator and staff person, purchase GPS tracking system and supplies for the Juvenile Electric Monitoring Program (JEM). JEM under the auspices of the Daytona Beach Police Department, will network with external agencies to deter juvenile crime, by enhancing the skill sets of JEM participants and by pairing these at-risk juveniles with a positive, adult role model.
