JAG Program

The JAG Program is a blend of the previous Byrne Formula and Local Law Enforcement Block Grant Programs. This program allows states, tribes and local governments to support a broad range of activities. These activities are aimed at preventing and controlling crime and drug abuse and improving the criminal justice systems based on local needs and conditions.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Office of Criminal Justice Grants, administers the JAG Program within the State of Florida. Every fiscal year they allocate a sum of money to each county, including the County of Volusia.

The county government then awards the funds to local governments and non-profit organizations within its jurisdiction. This distribution is based on the criteria contained in the grant regulations and priorities determined by the Substance Abuse Policy Advisory Board (SAPAB).

SAPAB is an advisory board that includes at a minimum the following persons or their authorized designee: chief circuit judge, state attorney, public defender, sheriff, chief of police of each municipality within the county or a chief of police designated by those chiefs of police as their representative, jail administrator, clerk of the court, superintendent of education and a representative of local drug treatment programs. They make recommendations of priority and funding allocations for the JAG Program for the Volusia County Council.
