Cherokee Marshal Service adds three



The Cherokee Nation Marshal Service is adding three new marshals to its 34-member squad after receiving an $845,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, according to a media release.

A $551,387 grant from the DOJ Office of Community Oriented Policing Services will pay the salary of three new marshals over the next three years. Nearly $300,000 from the grant will equip the new marshals with vehicles, pistols, bullet proof vests, uniforms and other essential equipment, the release states.
