Matheson Announces Grant to support Utah Drug and Gang Task Forces
Washington DC-Congressman Jim Matheson said today that the Department of Justice has awarded a $1.5 million Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant to the state of Utah.
The money goes to the Utah Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice. It will be used to support drug and gang task forces and projects in the state.
"Byrne grants are a proven method of helping local law enforcement fight drug and gang-related crimes in our communities. I will continue to be an advocate for funding of this vital program," said Matheson.
