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 Hawaii Department of the Attorney General will utilize this 2016 JAG award to focus on needs within the six major program areas of law enforcement, prosecution and courts, corrections and community corrections, drug treatment and enforcement, prevention and education, and planning, evaluation, and technology improvement. Projects selected for funding will focus on a comprehensive response to sex assault, elder abuse and violent crime; reducing property crime; reducing drug threats and drug related crime; reducing recidivism rates and improving reentry efforts; reducing juvenile offenses utilizing a coordinated response; improving records management systems and integrated justice information sharing; improving forensic science capabilities; and improving language access within the criminal justice system.
