Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $53,995)

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).

The city of Marietta will use the JAG award to purchase law enforcement equipment. Specifically, two fully equipped police vehicles for the Marietta Police Department (MPD) will be purchased. The MPD has a need for reliable police vehicles in a sufficient quantity to serve the needs of the citizens and visitors to the city. The project goal is to provide better and more effective law enforcement services in the city of Marietta by having additional marked police units available for patrol.
