Flint gets community policing grant
The Flint Police Department received a $1.2 million grant from the C.S. Mott Foundation. The grant will hire more police officers, pay for more equipment, and use community policing techniques.
Merry Morash, professor in the School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University said, "The focus on Flint is really because Mott Foundation, which is funding this, is highly invested in the city and wants to promote a very positive environment and Mott Foundation is located in Flint."
Michigan State University is working with the Flint police department as a part of their mission to support community policing. The School of Criminal Justice will provide both police and volunteer training and technical assistance in Flint.
