Okla. AG Encourages Law Agencies To Seek Grants

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is encouraging law enforcement agencies to apply for a state grant intended to support crime fighting strategies and reducing violent crime.

Pruitt says the Safe Oklahoma Grant program is funded by a $2 million appropriation from the state Legislature and provides local law enforcement agencies funding for strategies such as targeted staffing, increased technology and better analytical capability to determine which areas are experiencing higher rates of violent crime and why.

Recipients of the 2013 Safe Oklahoma Grant were the Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Lawton and Ada police departments and the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office and the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office.

The deadline to apply for the next round of grants is Jan. 31. The grants will be distributed in the spring.
