When President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, it included almost $2 Billion in additional funding for resources for State and Local law enforcement. The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Grant (JAG) is an annual grant and something most agencies are already taking advantage of. However, this year, the Byrne JAG program is a one-time infusion of stimulus funds that local law enforcement can use to support a wide range of programs.
