City of Lima gets Justice Department grant funds for crime control and prevention

LIMA — The City of Lima will receive $31,351 from Bureau of Justice Assistance as part of the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistant Grant, which can be used for a broad range of crime control and prevention strategies based on local needs.

The award was part of more than $17 million in grants from the U.S. Justice Departments to dozens of agencies in northern Ohio announced earlier this week.

“These funds will save lives, whether that is expanding a program that identifies the most dangerous abusers, provides emergency shelter to our most vulnerable victims, allows law enforcement to do a better job tracking and sharing crime data, just to name a few,” U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman said.
