Byrne JAG funds support the Lehigh Valley Regional Intelligence and Investigation Center's Gang Intelligence System (GIS). The GIS provides investigative case support, strategic analysis and situational awareness to Lehigh County law enforcement, PA State Police and the Allentown FBI Office. Funds were used to develop the GIS. The GIS cross-references incidents, arrests and incarcerations and performs social networking analysis on gangs, their members and their structure. Funds are also being used to develop, the Illicit Drug Identification and Tracking System, that will help track illicit drugs, capturing information on identifiable markings such as heroin stamps, synthetic drug compounds, and investigative information and drug-related death data.
