Durbin Announces $64,000 in Funding to Enhance Law Enforcement Capabilities in Joliet

WASHINGTON, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–July 25, 2012.  U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today announced that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has awarded $64,162 in Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants to support law enforcement officers in Joliet, Illinois. This funding will be used to purchase and install in-car cameras. 

“Our nation’s law enforcement officers are called upon day after day to protect America’s citizens,” Durbin said. “As these brave men and women put themselves in harm’s way, we must ensure that they are equipped with the best tools possible to do their jobs well, and today’s grant will help meet that goal.”

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, named in memorial of a young police officer who was killed while on duty, is administered by The Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). The grants are awarded to states and units of local government to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime and to improve the justice system.
