Fairbanks police grants set to expire in 2014

FAIRBANKS — Several state and federal grants that pay for 10 percent of Fairbanks police force are set to expire in 2014.

The News-Miner reports that for three of the jobs — two traffic officers and a drug investigator — there’s a “very high chance” that funding will be renewed next year.

City grants administrator Margarita Bell says things are a bit more tenuous for the school police officers stationed at Lathrop High School and West Valley High School. Bell says they’ll have to apply for that grant as a new applicant and the process is very competitive.

The city council is scheduled to vote on the 2014 budget on Monday night. It does not include money to replace the police officer jobs.
