Oneida County Law Enforcement To Get $433,000 Grant To Reduce Gun Violence

WIBX

Law enforcement agencies in 17 New York counties will be getting a share of more than $13 million to help reduce shootings and gun related homicides.
Governor Cuomo announced the funding that will be allocated through the state’s Gun Involved Violence Elimination – or GIVE initiative that is designed to help local law enforcement in communities that have high rates of violent crime.

Oneida county will receive $433,936 that will be shared by the UPD and the Oneida County Sheriff’s department.

GIVE focuses on communities that collectively report over 80% of violent crime in the state outside of New York City.

The Department of Criminal Justice Services will administer the grants and evaluate each agency’s progress over the next year.

“The State is working to reduce gun violence and make New York’s communities safer for all,” Governor Cuomo said. “Through the GIVE Initiative, we are partnering with local law enforcement agencies to address the causes of violent crime, reduce shootings, and bring offenders to justice. This funding will help ensure safer communities for millions of New Yorkers, and I am proud to be supporting the men and women who work to keep our streets safe.”
