10 Cities Get Federal “Smart” Evidence-Based Policing Grants


Ten cities will receive a total of about $4 million from the U.S. Justice Department for “smart policing” evidence-based law enforcement initiatives. The cities were chosen from among 18 applicants, says the U.S. Bureau of Justice Assistance. The largest grants, about $500,000 each, were given to Boston, Los Angeles, Memphis, Philadelphia, and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Other grantees were Lansing, Reno, Savannah, Winston-Salem, and Glendale. The CNA Corporation got a $699,000 grant for technical assistance. The Justice Department said the money is intended “to encourage exploration of new, unique solutions to public safety problems.”
