Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program is the primary provider of federal criminal justice funding to states and units of local government. The JAG Program is authorized by Title I of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) calculates a minimum base allocation for each state and territory which can be enhanced by (1) the state's share of the national population and (2) the state's share of the country's violent crime statistics. Once the state funding is calculated, sixty percent of the allocation is awarded to the state and forty percent to eligible units of local government.


The City of Reno, City of Sparks and Washoe County law enforcement agencies have been designated as a disparate jurisdiction, and have agreed to share the award as required under the grant. The City of Reno is the acting fiscal agent for the group and all funds must be applied to law enforcement uses.


The following Byrne JAG grants have been awarded by the US Department of Justice to the Reno Police Department:
