The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant ("JAG”) Program is the primary provider of federal criminal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions. JAG funds support all components of the criminal justice system, from multijurisdictional drug and gang task forces to crime prevention and domestic violence programs, courts, corrections, treatment, and justice information sharing initiatives. JAG funded projects may address crime through the provision of services directly to individuals and/or communities and by improving the effectiveness and efficiency of criminal justice systems, processes, and procedures.
The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office is applying for federal funding from the JAG Program to support the Livingston Parish Crime Prevention Initiative. The goal of the Livingston Parish Crime Prevention Initiative is to use technology to combat illegal drug sales in our communities.
