The city of Malden will utilize their Fiscal Year 2008 Justice Assistance Grant award in the amount of $11,417 to properly house and maintain the equipment purchased for the tactical unit.

The system will have various features including personal lockers with a cooling system, a workstation used to conduct repairs and maintenance to equipment, and a universal weapons rack.
