There is created and established within the police services budget of the city of Marysville a separate line item to be known as crime prevention funding. (Ord. 2646 § 2, 2006).

3.101.020 Source of crime prevention funding – Contribution required.

(1) In any case where an accused has been convicted of any misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor crimes in Marysville municipal court, there shall be, in addition to any fine levied, a penalty in the amount of $50.00, per charge, which penalty shall be nonsuspendable, and which shall be deposited into the crime prevention funding line item. The fact that this penalty is imposed on each charge shall not in any way reduce the obligation of the accused to pay any other cost, fine or penalty prescribed by the court.

(2) For the purposes of subsection (1) of this section, a conviction shall mean a deferred prosecution, deferred sentence or guilty finding. (Ord. 2646 § 2, 2006).

Monies deposited into this line item funding shall be used for funding police and administration of justice projects and activities geared towards crime prevention, including but not limited to: publications and dissemination of crime prevention information and for funding of other crime prevention projects and purposes, and for general police activities responding to and addressing the effects of crime within the community, and for any other purposes geared to improve administration of the criminal justice system, as determined and approved by the city council. (Ord. 2646 § 2, 2006).
