Kaptur announces Federal Funds for Local Law Enforcement

Oct. 18, 2012: Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur has announced that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has awarded federal funding for Lucas County and the City of Toledo to purchase bulletproof vests for officers. DOJ also awarded funding to help Lucas County cover costs incurred for incarcerating undocumented immigrants.

“It is vitally important that our law enforcement personnel have the equipment and support they need to protect our communities and I am pleased to announce federal support for our hard working officers,” said Kaptur.

Funding to purchase bulletproof vests is made available through the Bulletproof Vest Partnership Program, which provides matching grants for local law enforcement to purchase bulletproof and armored vests. Lucas County was awarded $5,553.27 to purchase 85 vests. The City of Toledo was awarded $10,128.60 to purchase 145 vests.

According to Rep. Kaptur’s press release, funding for costs incurred for incarcerating undocumented immigrants is made available through the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program, which is administered in conjunction with the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Citizenship and Immigration Services at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Lucas County was awarded $14,710 from the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program.
