Carson City will receive $15,985 from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program.
The grant was part of $1.3 million given to Nevada entities said Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto in a Tuesday press release.
“Nevada’s law enforcement officers work tirelessly to keep our communities safe, and federal grants under the Byrne JAG Program are critical in helping them do so,” said Cortez Masto. “That’s why I pushed hard this summer for more funds for this program, which will help police officers across Nevada prevent crime and promote public safety. I’ll keep working in the Senate to support Nevada’s law enforcement so they can do their jobs protecting Nevadans.”
The grant program awards will be disbursed as follows:
• $834,481 to Clark County
• $207,233 to the City of North Las Vegas
• $194,890 to the City of Reno
• $48,535 to the City of Henderson for mobile traffic signs and signals
