Byrne JAG funds support prosecution and court services and forensic drug analysis for the state’s multi-jurisdictional drug task forces. This focus on enhanced enforcement has led to funding probation-based drug monitoring programs and other probation-related services, drug courts, and indigent defense services for drug offenders. The state monitors the performance and effectiveness of this strategy and collects data on a variety of measures and drug-related outcomes, including drug-related convictions and sentencing, drug-related mortality rates, drug treatment admissions and emergency department admissions.
