Program Description
The USMS oversees all new construction and renovation of USMS-controlled space in U.S. courthouses and federal buildings, which includes: detention cellblocks, secure prisoner circulation corridors, courtroom holding cells, prisoner/attorney interview rooms, prisoner elevators, vehicle sallyports, and secure vehicle parking. A survey conducted by the USMS in 1999 revealed that 95 percent of USMS-controlled space has serious security deficiencies, posing a risk to the judicial family, the public, and the Deputy U.S. Marshals themselves. FY 2001 appropriated resources totalled $18,088,000, and will support renovation for 15 courthouse projects and other renovation projects. For FY 2002, the total construction request is $6,621,000, which will support an additional 6 renovation projects.
