Grants strengthen law enforcement

WASHINGTON - The Office of Community Oriented Policing Services on Aug.
26 announced grants totaling more than $18 million that were awarded to 80
tribal law enforcement agencies and governments to hire 73 officers and purchase
much-needed crime fighting equipment.

The grants were awarded under the COPS Tribal Resources Grant Program, which
provides funding to assist tribal police departments with hiring community
policing officers, purchasing basic equipment, procuring and implementing
crime fighting technology, and training and technical assistance. Since 1999,
including these grants, the program has provided more than $192.3 million to law
enforcement agencies that serve American Indian communities.

''Through these grants, we seek to increase the resources available to
Native American law enforcement agencies as they rely on community policing
strategies to reduce crime,'' said COPS Director Carl Peed. ''The funds we're
announcing today will help tribal police departments keep pace with the increasing
demands being made on them to address issues ranging from traditional crime
and disorder to homeland security and border protection.''

The TRGP is part of a broader federal initiative to bolster the capacity of
tribal law enforcement agencies. All federally recognized tribes with
established police departments are eligible to receive TRGP funding. For additional
information about COPS programs, visit the COPS Web site at
www.cops.usdoj.gov, or contact the COPS Response Center at (800) 421-6770.
