WCSO Among Recipients in Latest Round of Grant Funding
Written by WKTN Staff on March 13, 2023
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine awarded funding to help a dozen local law enforcement agencies prevent and investigate incidents of violent crime in their communities.
Twelve law enforcement agencies around the state will receive a total of $1.3 million in grants as part of the 12th round of the Ohio Violent Crime Reduction Grant Program.
In our region, the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office was awarded just over $168,500.
Governor DeWine, in partnership with the Ohio General Assembly, created the grant program in 2021 to give local law enforcement additional tools to address violence, including increases in crime associated with law enforcement retirements and resignations.
