Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $21,676)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local government, 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 plans to utilize the FY 2010 JAG award to continue Project Safe Streets. Funds will be used to puchase and outfit a used patrol vehicle with the necessary accessories. This would further the goals of the Marshall County Sheriff's Department by allowing for more reliable and increased patrol coverage, cost effective vehicles to replace aging vehicles, officer safety, and officer retention.
