NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) - Delaware officials are set to announce the latest round of federal crime-fighting grants for law enforcement agencies in the state.
Members of Delaware's congressional delegation planned to join other officials Thursday to announce the state's Justice Assistance Grant recipients for this year.
The JAG Program was created by Congress in 2004 to streamline justice funding and grant administrations.
The Delaware Criminal Justice Council received a JAG grant of almost $1.3 million last year.
Local law enforcement agencies across the state shared more than $700,000 in additional grant funds.
Editor's note: The original Associated Press article erroneously indicated that the DCJC received a JAG grant of almost $1.3 billion last year. The correct amount should have been $1.3 million.
