Stimulus Cash Infusion Allows For More Police Hires

Nearly $26 million dollars in stimulus cash is heading to Illinois Police Departments. The Chicago Police Department alone will be receiving $13 million, enough to allow for the hiring of 50 additional police officers. Northwest Indiana police departments will share $3.9 million. The City of Gary is expecting to hire at least 11 new police officers.

The funds are part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The United States Department of Justice is handling the funding as part of its Cops Hiring Recovery Program.
