Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $24,990)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local governments, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and local needs and conditions. Grant funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice, including for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

Marshall County, through the sheriff's department, will utilize its Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award to support Marshall County's Safe Street Project. The project will enhance safety and security for both residents and officers. The Marshall County Sheriff's Department will purchase two gently used patrol vehicles from the Missouri State Highway Patrol. They will also purchase radios, cages, and lights to equip the vehicles.
