JAG Grant

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 Gun Violence Reduction Initiative. The goals of the Livingston Parish Gun Violence Reduction Initiative are to provide overtime pay to gun violence investigators, use technology to provide officer safety and obtain evidence for illegal gun related prosecutions, prevent gun violence crimes, and to target violent crime offenders.
