Michigan criminal justice agencies get $1.2M
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Criminal justice agencies across Michigan are getting $1.2 million in federal grants to strengthen anti-drug and crime-fighting efforts.
The funding was announced Tuesday by Gov. Rick Snyder and the Michigan State Police. The grants come from American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program and are focused on technology enhancements.
Agencies receiving funding have until July 31 to spend the money. A list of awards is posted online.
Byrne JAG grants are named in honor of New York City police Officer Edward Byrne, who was fatally shot in 1988 on orders from a drug dealer.
