Generate revenue by housing federal prisoners
"Currently, the U.S. Marshal’s office for the Northern District of Ohio spends millions of dollars a year to house and transport federal prisoners to correctional facilities outside Cuyahoga County. By increasing capacity in local jails through more efficient processing of criminal cases, these prisoners could remain in Cuyahoga County’s detention facilities. This simultaneously saves money in transportation costs for the U.S. Marshal’s office while providing a consistent revenue stream for local law enforcement agencies."
