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).
Flagler County will use their 2016 JAG funds to purchase less than lethal weapons and window tint meters. The goals of this project are to: 1) provide officers with a less lethal option that permits officers to gain control over suspects or detainees with less risk of injury to the suspects, detainees or officers; and 2) to enhance the safety of law enforcement by providing officers better visibility on traffic stops.
