    Vermont Department of Public Safety


    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 Vermont, the Department of Public Safety uses JAG funding to support the salaries of local law enforcement officers who participate on the statewide multijurisdictional drug task force run out of the Vermont State Police. The task force is composed of individuals from state and local law enforcement agencies. Recent priorities include heroin, opioids, prescription drugs, and crack cocaine interdiction.
