Federal Grants Boost New Hampshire Criminal Justice Efforts
New Hampshire law enforcement departments have received three grants, part of the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program through the U.S. Department of Justice. The largest grant was awarded to the New Hampshire Department of Justice, which received $1.08 million to thwart drug operations, investigate cyber-related crimes and complete the statewide criminal justice information system, known as J-ONE. A second grant to Manchester and Nashua Police Departments, and Hillsborough County, for $211,014 grant will go toward the purchase of radar detection equipment and provide officers with emergency first aid products and training. Concord Police Department and Merrimack County Sheriff's office have received a $27,000  grant to buy Tasers, patrol bicycles and forensic equipment. The news comes from Sen. Jeanne Shaheen's website. "New Hampshire depends on a well-equipped, well-trained law enforcement workforce to protect our families and communities," said Shaheen.  "This funding is an important part of ensuring that our officers have the tools and expertise they need to carry out this critical responsibility. These grants are an investment in the men and women who risk their lives day in and day out to keep the Granite State safe."
