    The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program allows states and local governments to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control drug trafficking, drug related crime, and violent crime. Based on their own local needs and conditions, agencies are provided with the flexibility to prioritize and place justice funds where they are needed most.

    JAG funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice for any one or more of the following purpose areas:

    • Law enforcement programs.
    • Prosecution and court programs.
    • Prevention and court programs.
    • Corrections and community corrections programs.
    • Drug treatment and programs.
    • Planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs.

    In Oklahoma, the District Attorney's Council identified the following priorities for FY 2016–2020 JAG solicitations:

    • Reduce the importation, manufacturing, trafficking, distribution, and possession of illegal drugs and controlled substances throughout the state;
    • Reduce the violence related to gangs through prevention, enforcement, and prosecution;
    • Assist local law enforcement through the procurement of equipment as prioritized by the JAG Board;
    • Encourage innovative law enforcement projects that address violent crime control that improves the functioning of the criminal justice system;
    • Encourage innovative prosecution projects that address drugs and violent crime control that improves the functioning of the criminal justice system;
    • Encourage innovative prevention projects that address drugs and violent crime control that improves the functioning of the criminal justice system;
