JPD receives federal grant for equipment

Posted: August 9, 2012 - 12:07am

The Alaska Congressional Delegation announced in a news release Tuesday that the City and Borough of Juneau received a $21,665 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Cindee Brown-Mills told the Empire that CBJ/JPD has received the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant for the past four years.

Brown-Mills said the funding this year will go toward needed equipment. That includes rain jackets for patrol officers, and hardware and software upgrades for the JPD bomb defusing robot.

In years past, the department used the grant money to fund a social worker position called the Police Crisis Intervention Specialist, and also for other needed equipment.
