NEW ORLEANS - U.S. Sen. David Vitter says the federal government is awarding $181,269 in grants to support criminal justice services in Louisiana.

The grants include:

  • $132,984 to Shreveport and the Caddo Parish sheriff's office to buy equipment and supplies
  • $28,856 to Bossier City and the Bossier Parish sheriff's office to buy equipment and supplies
  • $19,429 to the Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government to buy equipment for the Houma Police Department.

Vitter, in a news release this week, said the grants are awarded through the U.S. Department of Justice's Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program, which supports states, tribes and local governments in preventing and controlling crime.
