As local government budgets become tighter and exercise more fiscal conservancy, most law enforcement agencies are finding their budgets tightened as well. This situation mandates that agencies rely more and more on local, state and federal grants. Even with decreasing budgets, agencies still must keep up with modern technology, equipment, and personnel in order to fully protect their citizens.
Our Grant Division is aggressively looking for grant opportunities and applying for these grants. If awarded, grant monies can be awarded with both no matching or matching money restrictions. The money received is specifically earmarked to provide funding as specified in the grant request, i.e. to develop responses to local crime and drug problems with additional equipment, personnel and special tasks forces.
At this time, most grants are received from the Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Justice Assistance, Governor’s Highway Safety Project and Tennessee Department of Human Services.
