Stimulus Allocates $2.7 million For First District Public Safety

Congressman G. K. Butterfield said that federal stimulus package directs more than $2.7 million into policing efforts across his district.

Butterfield says the funding will help bridge some of the gaps and keep police officers on the job.

Grants may be used to provide personnel, equipment, training, technical assistance, and information systems for more widespread apprehension, prosecution, adjudication, detention, and rehabilitation of offenders who violate such state and local laws. Grants also may be used to provide assistance to victims of these offenders.

The funds were distributed according to a formula calculated by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics. Under the law, 60% of each state's allocation is awarded to the state and 40% must be sent to local government.
