Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program

Boulder Police Department has received an allocation from the Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance for the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program.

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant is a recurring grant that the Boulder Police Department has received for many years with the exception of FY 2017 and FY 2018. It has typically been used by the department for equipment and training. The Boulder Police Department proposes to use their FY 2021 funding allocation for riot bunker shields to replace shields that are over 20 years old and software to access digital data. The city has no control of the use of the funds by the other agencies.
