Marshall County gets law enforcement funds
Sixteen grants worth more than $2.24 million have been approved for municipal and county law enforcement agencies in Mississippi to upgrade equipment and improve public safety, U.S. Senator Thad Cochran said.
One of the recipients is Marshall County, which will receive $10,278 to support law enforcement safety training.
The grants to Mississippi police and sheriffs’ departments represent formula grant funding provided through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Justice.
The largest of the 16 grants is a $1.99 million award to the Mississippi Division of Public Safety Planning to help state and local law enforcement combat illegal drug and violent crime activities by interdiction and activities statewide.
