Stabenow, Levin Announce Support for Reed City and Evart to Hire Police Officers

Tuesday, Jun 26, 2012

U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today announced support for Reed City and Evart to hire and retain law enforcement officers.  The grant comes from the Department of Justice's Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Hiring Program.

This year, the program has a unique requirement: all new officers hired under the grant must be military veterans that have served at least 180 days of active service, which occurred on or after September 11, 2001.

"Today's announcement is especially rewarding," said Stabenow.  "Not only will the communities of Reed City and Evart be able to hire more police officers to keep families safe, but military veterans who have served since 2001 will be provided new job opportunities.  It is so fitting that those who have kept our country safe and served in the military should be given the opportunity to come home and serve the public as police officers."

"For nearly two decades, the COPS program has been helping keep communities safe in Michigan and across the country," Levin said. "In addition to helping keep Michigan safe, these latest grants will help those who have served in the military continue to serve our nation."

The two cities' police departments will both receive $125,000 which will be used to hire, recruit, and retain police officers. 

The COPS Hiring Program (CHP) grant is intended to support the hiring and retention of full-time sworn officers.  For more information on the COPS Program, visit: www.cops.usdoj.gov.
