TAG Law Enforcement Task Force is a grant agency that receives its funding from the Office of Criminal Justice Services through the Byrne Memorial Grant. JAG LE projects reduce crime, increase public safety, and support the Ohio Incident-Based Reporting System (OIBRS). OIBRS is a crime reporting system that allows criminal justice agencies to submit data directly to state and federal government in an automated format. JAG LE funds can be used to hire, train and employ additional law enforcement personnel or support overtime to employed law enforcement. This grant requires local matching funds from the participating counties. Our counties have been providing support to narcotics task forces for many years and without that support we would no longer exist.
Task Forces funded by the Byrne grant must reapply every year for funding. Funding is based off the accomplishments of a task force in the previous year and the task force project as written. There are approximately 30 task forces operating across the State of Ohio and Byrne funding is provided across the entire United States.
